Revised to add soup bases and red pepper flakes 02/11/96 A revised recipe for my crockpot beans and ham. I used home grown horticulture beans, added beef and chicken soup base, and red pepper flakes to spice them up a bit. Got such raves from the family I decided I better revise the recipe while I still remembered what changes I made to it. Also decided to try soaking the beans overnight in baking soda water in an attempt to avoid the usual gassiness. Seems to have worked quite well, the beans were quite tender without being mushy.
