Pour dried beans in a large bowl.
Add water to cover and soak overnight.
In the morning, rinse and drain.
Add lima beans to a Crock-Pot.
Cover with chicken broth, I use about a box and a half.
Add a large ham hock nestled in the center of the beans.
Add your seasonings of choice. My Daddy simply seasons with salt and pepper. I like to also add garlic powder. My Mom likes celery salt and onion powder.
Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours until beans are soft and the mixture is thick. Add additional liquid if needed.
Remove the ham hock before serving.
Ladle into bowls and devour!
