Crock Pot Ham and Beans

Every time I make a Glazed Ham on the Grill there is a hunk of it I just can't get sliced nice off the bone.  I put it in a zip shut bag. I have a plan for it's use but won't want a ton of ham for a while so in the freezer it goes.

This "recipe" is simple.  So simple there is only one step by step photo and only two ingredients if you don't count the water!  You can certainly cook this on the stove.  That is how I grew up eating it at home.  Throwing it all in the crock pot is even simpler than that!

Crock Pot Ham and Beans

Leftover ham chunk
1 pound bag dried Great Northern beans
6 cups water

Sort through your beans to make sure there aren't any rocks (yes, sometimes they make it through processing) or any odd looking beans.  Rinse.  Place beans and rest of the ingredients in the crock pot, set on low and cook for 6-8 hours or until beans are tender.
Shred the ham a little so everyone gets both beans and ham in their bowl.  Great served with a slice of cornbread.
