I will shout it loud and shout it proud...
I love lentils!
This particular recipe is crockpot lentil soup from The Apron Gal. Ham and lentil soup in the crockpot? I was so there.
My crockpot must have been running cold, because after 4 hours on low, the lentils were no where near being done. I cranked the slow cooker up to high for another 1 and a half hours and they were lentil perfection.
I was lucky enough to have homemade ham stock on hand instead of the suggested chicken stock. This made for a very rich ham flavor throughout the soup. I highly recommend using ham stock if you can.
One more thing, I only had pomegranate red wine vinegar instead of plain old ordinary red wine vinegar. The recipe only calls for 2 tsp of vinegar, so I don't think it made any difference.
