  1. Place the ham hock in a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker, and fill half way full with water. Set to High.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon for a few minutes, then add onions, carrots, and cabbage. Cook, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder and garlic; cook for 2 more minutes. Transfer the mixture to the slow cooker, and add beans, tomatoes, and sage.
  3. Cover, and cook 2 hours on High. Reduce heat to Low, and cook for 6 to 7 hours, or until beans are tender. Transfer ham hock to a cutting board, remove meat from bone, and return meat to slow cooker. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.

Very hearty with a distinctive taste. In the process of preparation and after it was served there were numerous request for the recipe. A "must try" for busy bean lovers.

No one in my family liked this soup particularly. It was too "tomato-y" and the chili powder was a bit overwhelming. This recipe makes A LOT. It was, however, much better several days later. ...
