Looks good. Can this recipe be made in the slowcooker?

I forgot to add, we add baking soda to the beans as they soak over night. That might help with the gas people were talking about, but not sure?

All the women in my family for generations reserve cooking water without incident. The water has starch which acts as a binder. Any Chef will tell you that when making pasta, you reserve 1-Cup of cooking water and add it to the sauce you are preparing. Same goes for beans.
