Easy Ham and Navy Bean Soup

WTH?! That looks like a kidney stone, but these aren't kidney beans!

This was so easy and had an awesome touch of sweetness to it that I’m not used to in bean soup. I think it was choosing a honey ham and using baby carrots that made the difference. The liquid smoke was also a nice touch.  Throwing something in the slow cooker and forgetting about it […]
