I cooked these for less than 8 hours on low and they looked more like refried beans. They turned to complete mush.

I made this with ham hock. I did add a bit of garlic to it and served it over rice! Was so good with homemade corn bread. Good even when it's not on rice!

I saw this recipe for Hoppin' John and I just had to try it. I've always wanted to make this and I am glad I used this wonderful recipe. It was easy...... and very TASTY! I used ham broth that I made with the bone from my Christmas ham instead of the water, 1 clove of garlic instead of 3 and 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt (Tastefully Simple brand) instead of 2 teaspoons. It was a perfect New Year's Day meal ...... served with baby spinach sauteed in bacon drippings and corn bread. I'll be making this again!

I was afraid this would be bland and need some excitement, but it ended up quite tasty. I did simmer a hambone in it, which couldn't have hurt anything!
