Crock Pot Northern Beans and Ham

Go make this now!!! It is so good! My hubby and boys loved it!


Crock Pot Northern Beans & Ham

1 - 16 oz package dried northern beans (1 lb)
3 -4 meaty ham shanks, hocks or ham (1 - 1 1/2 pounds) (I just bought thick ham and cut it into chunks)
1 - small onion, diced
water, enough to cover beans
salt & pepper to taste
1/3 - cup light brown sugar (I used Splenda Brown Sugar)

Sort the beans for any pebbles and the rinse beans under cold water. Add the the rinsed beans, onion, salt, pepper, and ham shanks, hocks or ham (chopped into large chunks) into the crock pot. Add enough water to cover the beans by about 2 inches. (about 6 - 8 cups)

Cover and cook on low for about 6 - 8 hours, or until beans are tender. Remove the ham shanks or hocks and pull off all of the meat. Return the meat to the crock pot and add the brown sugar. Lightly mix to combine. Ladle in to bowls and serve.
