It that time of the year again.  It slowly gets cooler, the leaves start changing, the days get shorter, and we finally get the rain that we could of used all summer.  It can rain for days and some times a chill set in and yes theirs only one way to get rid of it.....Soup!
I came up with this great bean soup recipe that uses raw unsoaked beans.  Just throw everything into the slow cooker and at the end of the day you have the perfect bowl of warmth.
1/2 lb raw navy beans
12 cups of water 
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped small diced celery
1 tbsp dried basil
1 1/2 cups chopped ham
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Sort beans and rinse well.  Dump beans into slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredient and mix well.  cook on low for 8 hours
