     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.
