Bacon is a fundamental ingredient in many slow-cooked recipes, imparting richness to otherwise one-dimensional dishes. Mild applewood-smoked bacon enhances the subtle flavors of this soup of beans and greens.
A fresh slab of bacon can be sliced or diced however you like (remove the rindif you prefer). To make lardons, cut the slab into thick slices, then cut them crosswise into cubes or strips. Fry the pieces until crisp.

How should the instructions change to make this a "slow cooker" recipe?
