How long should I cook this? I've never done dry beans before. Will a full day in the crock pot be enough, or should I start them tonight for dinner tomorrow night? Should I leave the ham bone in that whole time? Will water 2 inches above the beans really be enough? It seems like it would cook off. Is it a good idea to use the juices in the bottom of the foil from the ham? And finally, seasonings! What kinds of seasonings should I throw in the pot? I've got the basics in my pantry, and I'm thinking of running to the store later anyways so I could even get something if I don't have it.
Any advice? Thanks to you all in advance!
