Last week we had some very nice, warm weather in the valley. Monday it chilled down considerably and I got to thinking about warming up with some beans-n-ham-n-cornbread. That’s how we say it in our house, like it’s all one word. We even have a little song I used to sing when Boo and Bud were younger (you’ll have to set your own tune because I’m not singing it, LOL) Beans -n- ham -n- cornbread, doo, doo. Beans – n- ham -n- cornbread, doo, doo.
Anyway, it’s an easy recipe, but yummy and tummy-filling and very inexpensive.
1 lb. dried beans (I use Great Northern beans, but you can use Navy beans or pintos also)
8 cups water
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
2 lb. smoked hamhocks
Combine all ingredients in a 5 qt. or larger slow cooker. Cook 8 hours on high setting.
When they’re done, they should look something like this.
Serve with warm cornbread. You can find my sweet cornbread recipe here.
