Slow Cooker Black Bean & Hambone Soup with Cumin

With the help of the slow cooker, this healthy, flavorful Black Bean & Ham soup will fill your house with a delicious aroma. It takes little preparation and is a great use of a leftover ham bone. If you make this soup with a stripped down ham bone or hock with no meat on it, you can add 1/4 pound of thick cut ham (1/2 inch thick), from a deli, chopped, to add more flavor and texture if desired.
