So easy to prepare and has that fantastic made from scratch taste that you can't get out of can. I just soaked the beans in my crockpot over night, draining off most of the water in the morning. By the time you cook them for 12-14 hours, you really don't need to cook the beans seperately beforehand. Browned the salt pork first before adding so the pork would completely render. Added 1/2 tablespoon of cider vinegar to the beans right before serving to perk them up a little.



I'n giving this one three stars, even though mine were inedable. The flavor was fantastic, but my beans never fully cooked. I took the suggestion of a few reviewers and didn't pre-cook (did pre-soak) the beans and I'm sure that was where I went wrong. I will try this one again, due to the "sauce" of the beans being really flavorfull, but will be sure to pre-cook my beans.



I served this yesterday for a New Years celebration and all I got were rave reviews. I only did a few things different. I did a quick soak on the beans and did not pre-cook them. I just put two cups of the soaking liquid in the crockpot. I followed the other directions exactly other than that I added two whole jalepenos to it (seeds and all) to give it a slight heat in the back of your throat when you eat was so mild that my norweigen in-laws couldn't really tell that I had added it. The beans came out darker colored (normal when making them in the crockpot) but the taste is out of this world!! You must try this recipe!!!
