Butter Bean and Ham Hock Recipe [split from GT]

When we had the Friendly Cafe back in the late 60's, we often had buter beans and ham hock as special on the menu. I still fix it in my crock pot once in a while.

They also make a good dip mashed with refied beans, onions finely diced. Salt, pepper and a little jalapeno.

      Be glad to, it's very simple,

      2 ham hocks
      1 pkg dry butter beans soaked overnight and drained
      water to cover
      1 tsp all seasoning
      1 half tsp freshly cracked pepper
      water to cover
      you judge the salt because I do not use it.

      Throw them in a crock pot and let them cook till the beans are tender

      (I leave them all day, or over night)

        Thank you! Do you ever make this using other bean types or a mix of beans?
