Son In Law made a ham for Christmas dinner while I was at work. That left us a goodly bit of ham and a nice big ham bone. So what do you do with a nice big ham bone?

1 lb Great Northern beans
garlic pepper
Chipolte Tabasco sauce
1 T flour (opt)

You could also use garlic salt and peppercorn medley grinders, whichever you prefer.

Put the beans in a crock pot and cover with 2" of water. Leave them to soak overnight, at least 8 hours. In the morning put in the ham bone, 1 lb of the leftover ham cut up into bite sized pieces, salt and pepper to taste, and Tabasco sauce. Turn the crock pot on low and leave it sit for 8 hours. Resist the temptation to lift the lid, the beans will cook better that way. After the eight hour cooking time has elapsed test the beans, they should be nice and tender. If you want to thicken the sauce stir in the flour. Give the bone to the dog and serve the beans with biscuits.
