  5. Carefully remove the ham bone/hock and cut off the leftover ham bits from the bone and mix them back into the slow cooker with the beans. Discard the bone.
Recipe Notes

Once cooked, these beans can easily be stored in freezer containers for future meals. Simply let the beans cool to room temperature and spoon them into freezer containers, label them with the name of the recipe and date and store in the freezer for up to 6 months. Reheat in the microwave, on the stove-top or even in the slow cooker until hot.
