- 1 clove garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp.

Wash beans. Put everything in crock pot along with ham bone (that has small amount of ham still on). Start cooking at high (I usually start it in the evening) and after it starts cooking, turn to simmer. Cook it all night and until serving time at noon or even later. Remove bay leaf before serving.
