Expert Tips

Dried leaf herbs are called for in most slow cooker recipes because they tend to hold their flavor better than fresh herbs during long cooking times. However, if you have fresh herbs on hand, stir in 1 tablespoon fresh marjoram and 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves at the end of the cooking time.

It doesn't matter what type of beans you use in this recipe. Butter, kidney and black beans are super alternatives to the great northern beans.
