So lately I've been cooking with my crockpot, with mixed success. I decided to post the recepees here, and I definitely love both of these. I've been making lots and freezing it to help get through the winter when I don't have the energy to cook.


Ham and Bean soup:

2 pounds ham, large bite-sized chunks
1/2 pound 16-bean soup beans (uncooked)
1/2 a large onion, diced

In a 1/2 gallon crockpot, combine all ingrediants. Fill crockpot with boiling water. Cook for five to eight hours. Serve with cubes of chedder cheese


Irish Lamb soup:

1 pound cubed leg of lamb
1 large carrot
1 pound potatos, cubed to bite size
1/2 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, halved
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a 1/2 gallon crockpot, combine all ingrediants. Fill pot with boiling water, and cook on high for five hours. Turn down heat to low and cook for another two hours, or until meat is tender.


Both recepees freeze well, and are so easy to make. Plus, buying large quantities of ingreadiants makes for cheaper meals. May look into getting a bigger crockpot.

Both of these recepes origanally called for broth instead of water, but I really didn't like the taste of the packaged broth, and didn't want to make my own. instead, cook it a little longer, until the meat(and bone, in the lab's case) cooks all that flavor into the soup.

The ingrediants for the ham soup that you'll need to buy will probably make two pots of soup, so I reccomend having a bowl or two from each pot, and freezing the rest.
Mmm, these sound great! A bigger crock-pot could be easily obtained next week, if you're cool with hauling it back when you go home.
