Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you have cooked a ham can cook the beans in the water used to boil the ham and omit the bacon and salt.
Boil the ham bone with a carrot and onion for 2 hours. Then use the liquid instead of the bean water.
Once beans are partially cooked and proceed as described and cook for several hours in a crock pot.
Can substitute chili sauce for catsup.
