Crockpot White Bean and Ham Soup

1 lb of dried White Northern Beans, rinsed and sorted through
about 1 lb of ham, large pieces
3 (14.5 oz each) cans of chicken stock
1 medium white onion, diced

How to Make it:

Place all ingredients in crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours.
That's it! lol Easy, huh? I think that's a huge reason why I liked this recipe so much! I didn't add extra salt b/c I wasn't sure how salty the soup would be from the ham.
The kids ate it fine without extra salt, but Kevin and I added a little sea salt to our bowls. We also ate it with some mini corn muffins - the Jiffy brand was on sale (not that it's not already cheap) 2 for $0.95.
This is the brand that my mother in law uses so it's now my go-to brand.
Parker thought he was getting a special treat b/c it was muffin shaped! lol Oh and next time, I'll probably add some spinach to the soup to get some veggies worked into the soup!

I was taught to add the salt towards the last half of cooking time. It supposedly takes beans longer to cook if you add salt at the beginning. I also sometimes use some celery salt instead. You can taste the broth for flavor before you add salt if you want to. Then finish cooking them to your liking. I like mine real soft and done.
