Meanwhile add the remaining ingredients to the Crockpot and set the temperature for high.

After beans have boiled for an hour, drain them in a colander and add them to the Crockpot.

Cook on high for about 8 hours.

A bit of minced pickled jalapeno is nice added at serving time . . . or pickled beets . . . or home made chow chow.

And don't forget the cornbread.
