Re: How many dried beans for a crock-pot with ham?
I just made bean w/ bacon soup in a 6 quart using 2 lbs. great northern and a half pound of navy. We got two meals out of it for a family of 6 (only 5 eating a quantity worth counting).
Just a side note: I have found that I can cook great northern beans w/o soaking and they do just fine. We also like to make our bean dishes a day before we eat them. They taste much better the next day.
