Re: How many dried beans for a crock-pot with ham?
As one of my ex-roomates dubbed me the "Crockpot Queen", I have a lot of experience with crockpots and beans (just don't ask me to make cookies - that's a very hard task for me not to burn them)! Anyway, I never presoak my beans and just add them to the water and whatever else I put in there. It takes a 16 oz. bag of dried beans about 4-5 hrs. on high to be completely cooked (with no other things in there but spices, etc.). Just in case you wanted to know for future beanie recipes!
