Sweet Harold has been requesting butterbeans for awhile and hopefully this batch cured his craving. Dried beans cook wonderfully in a crock pot and that's the way I cooked these.
1 pound of large white dried butterbeans, rinsed and sorted
Water to cover them by about 2 inches
2 T. chicken bouillon granules
2 slices bacon, chopped
Add butterbeans and water to cover. Stir in the chicken bouillon granules and cover. Set crockpot to low and cook for 6 hours or set to high and cook for 4 hours.
Add the bacon slices during the last hour or so of cooking. Taste for seasoning and add a little salt if needed.
I made a skillet of cornbread, fried some diced up potatoes, steamed some Brussels sprouts and cooked some cubed pork steaks. A delicious meal.
