    Hi!

    What kind of beans are you talking about?

    I mean, I'm pretty sure you mean dried beans but not sure if you mean lima beans, northern or whatever.

    Also I wanted to thank you for the tip of putting beans over rice 'cuz I never would have thought of that!

    What should the bean to water ratio be? Should I just cover the beans with water? Can you tell I've never done beans in a crockpot before?

    Did you mean to include some recipes? Which "all of these" have you tried?

    This looks great.....but you need to give us more info.
    How much water?
    Beans to water ratio?

    I like the idea of adding uncooked sausage to dry beans and water.....what could possibly be easier?

    Hi Michelle,

    I never measure mine so don't know exact water ratio to the beans but with mine, I use enough water to cover them and then some more [water].

    I put quite a bit of water in mine 'cuz the beans will soak the water up as they cook [I just wouldn't fill the crockpot to the top with water is all. ]

    Maybe someone else who does this and measures things could help ya better than I can, I'm just not a measuring type of gal. *lol*

    I have a recipe like this but calls for ham bone.

    Ingredients

    1 tsp cornstarch
    1 lb red beans, soaked overnight and drained
    1 ham bone
    1/2 lb sliced bacon, chopped
    1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
    1 tsp salt
    3 stalks celery, chopped fine
    2 medium onions, chopped fine
    1 bunch green onions, chopped fine

    Put 3 inches water in a slow cooker and stir in cornstarch. Add all remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 hours or until beans are tender. Remove ham bone and chop meat; return meat to cooker. Serve over brown rice.


    I rarely have ham bone so I substituted it with italian sausage and eliminated bacon. I also use white rice instead of brown coz I was out. It's yummy, kids and hubby liked it.

    Okay ladies I`m sorry I`m just getting back to you. I`m new a t posting recipe`s.
    yes it is dried bean`s Traci, 1lb I usually 7 cup`s water,because I don`t worry about it for 5to 6hrs,
    It may have to much liquid so I put some in a coffee cup and add corn starch. If it is needed I do it again.
    I`ve tried all these. pinto`s mixed , white bean`s and red beans and they are all good.yummy.
    hth
    or else I drain some off If needed then . then work with corn starch.
    one time I tried adding less water, was gone all day. so i`d rather have to much.
    yep this was a recipe!

    any kind of beans, split peas, pinto, white... i add a lot of garlic powder as well.

    i do this with 1/2 pound of bacon instead of sausage. i think she means just put the dry beans in the crockpot, cover them with a lot of water, add the meat and cook all day in the crockpot. Not a measuring recipe!

    I have always had to soak mine overnight before putting them in the crockpot to keep them from taking forever or being hard by evening. I did not know about the corn starch tip, thanks for sharing it with us.

    I've never tried the cornstarch method, but I have drained some of the extra liquid off if there was too much, usually place into the dog's food bowl.
    Another idea if using a slow cooker....is to take the lid off and let cook on high until thickened up and cooked through.
    We usually cook Pinto and Great Northern Beans with a ham bone OR ham hock...tasty...

    I learned a few years ago that I could make beans in the crockpot. So easy that is basically the only way I make them now.

    I generally add some minced garlic ( we love garlic) and a tablespoon or so of olive oil in addition to the beans and water.

    great idea will have to use it the next time I make beans which will be in the next day or two.

    Do you all pre-soak the beans the night before?
