I had never made or eaten this dish before meeting my husband here in Kentucky. Now I make it at least once a week. I serve it with some homemade sweet corn bread. Delicious! —Christine Duffy, Sturgis, Kentucky

"I am currently soaking my dried beans. it's after midnight here. early in the morning I'll buy my smoked ham hocks and all will go in the Crocker. will report back when dinner is done. gonna serve with spongy home made crusty bread and simple green salad with mayo/ketchup/s&p/sweet relish/dijon as dressing

well, man is this tooooo salty and I love salt. tried adding small handful of raw unbleached sugar as sugar cuts salt, nope, then added more water, nope, put in a couple tablespoons of sour cream, nope. is this a complete wash? I did think of putting in either a small amount of vinegar/red wine/coffee.
HELP? how do I save this please&thank you."

"I really liked the flavor of this recipe and it made a lot! My only negative was that I thought it was very salty even though I used the reduced sodium chicken broth. Perhaps that was from the ham hocks. Adding some diced potatoes would maybe counteract the saltiness. The recipe was very easy to make and the house smelled wonderful while it was cooking!"
