How to make it

  • Score ham hocks and place in bottom of large crock pot.
  • Put onion, garlic, tomatoes, beans, cayenne, and lemon on top of ham hocks.
  • Cover with water.
  • Set crockpot to HIGH for longest setting (mine is 6 hours).
  • Once high cycle is finished, set to LOW for longest setting (mine is 10 hours).
  • When finished with low cycle, remove ham hocks and check for bones that have fallen off in the soup. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.

    Sure! You can pretty much use anything that's going to give it a flavor, and a bone will work well.

    Nope, not at all. Because you cook on high and then on low for a total of about 16 hours, soaking is not needed. Some will claim that soaking and changing the water will eliminate some of the adverse digestive effects beans have on some people, but I can't really tell the difference.

    I've often had store-bought ham-and-bean soup, but homemade will be so much better! You don't need to soak the beans at all, right?
