Q: I'm looking for a navy bean soup recipe for a slow cooker. Thanks. Mary Edling, Weeki Wachee
Tampa resident Heather Munger shares a recipe she found on allrecipes.com for a slow cooker navy bean soup. Even though this is a recipe for a slow cooker, it does take planning because the dried beans require overnight soaking. I tasted for seasoning prior to serving because ham can be salty. So, 10 hours on low was perfect but it's nice to know that if you're running late, it can stay for an additional two hours. With planning and advance preparation you could have everything ready to go into the pot first thing in the morning before leaving for work and have a warm and hearty soup ready for dinner. Serve with a sandwich or corn bread to complete the meal.
