MY REVIEW

"We loved this soup. I didn't have any Navy beans on hand so I substituted other dried beans. Fail. I put the beans into my slow cooker at about 8:30am and at 6:30pm they were still hard. Left it on all night....in the morning, still hard. Switched it to high and then at noon we ate it--about 27 hours later. :) Some beans were still crunchy. But--having said that it was absolutely DELICIOUS! I will make this over and over again...I'll just soak my beans overnight first. I can't stress enough how flavorful this soup is! I added a can of chopped tomatoes and omitted the Knorr veg. soup pack because I didn't have any. Oh my, so YUMMY!"

"My husband isn't a fan of Navy Bean Soup. I made this and the only thing I did differently was I had a ham hock I used in the pot for flavoring. I thought the soup was absolutely delicious. My husband actually had thirds, not just seconds. He declared it was a keeper and asked me to make it again and soon."

"Good soup. My husband loved it. I did add. A packet of ham season which gave it a bit more favor but over all was a great and easy dinner on a cold damp day. Served with creamed corn corn bread."
