  • Pinto beans

    I'm looking to replace ham hocks from my beans because I'm sick of bone chips getting loose. What a good replacement?

    Ham, bacon, Little Smokies and plain sausage.

      Place the ham hocks in a bag that lets them give the flavor but don't fall apart. There are many such bags usually for spices. Then of course you can just strain the soup.

        All ^that^, and salt pork as well.

        PLAIN SAUSAGE?! Pruitt, I'm surprised. I'd have bet my left lower you'd have went with Andouille.

          Sounds like you leave it in too long. There is no replacement for ham hocks.

            I don't use plain sausage, I was throwing it out there. There are some little stores around Iowa and Mamou Louisiana the family likes to buy from. If in a bind, I will go to Kroger and pick up Hillshire Farm.

              Wrap it in cheesecloth.

                That'll do it.

                  I like the posts and I don't have much to add to the advice. The bag sounds like a muslin bag Bouquet Garni and it's a great idea. A bayleaf, garlic and fresh herb mix in a little tied muslin bag does the same job without getting in the food I love creamy mashed beans in the Slow Cooker, with chicken stock and bacon. A couple of pounds of pinto beans in ten cups of chicken stock takes about three to four hours slow cooking.

                  Maybe some peppers and pico de gallo, cheese too. Mash it up and it makes a great veg for fish or steak. And no soaking necessary.
                  Best wishes.

                    Would smoked turkey drumsticks work for you?

                      I never use anything but ham. But I also use 15 Bean Soup instead of plain pintos.

                        Well, that's good enough for Saint Lo, but I'm cooking in Texas, and a higher standard must be maintained.

                        Tried a smoked spiral cut ham (just part of the ham, not the whole ham), and used onion slices that were seasoned with garlic. Worked great.

                            No, I can't hack Jalas except as breaded poppers. I do use some red pepper, but overall I'm not a spicy eater.

                            My next culinary effort is fried pickles, a huge favorite of mine and my wife.
