Slow Cooker Green Beans, Redskin Potatoes, and Ham

Weeknights can be hectic around here and the slow cooker is one of my best friends.  This one pot dish is super easy, I just make some rolls and we are all set!  There is nothing to it!
2 lbs of Redskin Potatoes cleaned and cut
1.5 lbs of Fresh Green Beans- cleaned
2 Tablespoons of Better than Bouillon Ham Base
Pepper to taste

Cut and quarter redskin potatoes.  Disolve 2 tablespoons ham base in 3 cups of water in slow cooker.  Next, add green beans and potatoes and season with black pepper.  
Cook on high for about 5 hours.  Add in the slices or chunks of ham for the 45-60 minutes.  The ham is already cooked it just needs to be heated through.  The Ham Base will provide excellent flavor to both the potatoes and green beans. Depending on temperature of slow cooker, you may need to do this shorter or longer and of course you can do it on low if you want to leave it longer while at work.
