2 pounds dried Northern Beans
1 onion, diced
5-6 carrots, washed, peeled, and sliced
sliced celery, about 1 cup
Ham hock (I used the leftover bone from Christmas!)
2 Bay leaves
4 c. chicken stock
4 c. beef broth
Cover beans with water and soak overnight. Drain. Rinse well, and add to the crockpot.
To the crockpot add all ingredients. Cook on low at least 8 hours. Discard bay leaf. Serve with salt and pepper.
