Sweet & Spicy Red Bean Soup

1 large onion
4 cloves garlic
4 ounces ham-hock or ham shanks or salt pork
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 cup carrot slices
3 15 oz. cans red beans, drained
1 1/2 cups apple juice or cider
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 cup dry red wine, optional

Sauté onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons oil, put in crock pot with
meat. In onion pan heat tomatoes w/carrots. When hot add to crock pot.
Heat beans with juice and add to crock pot with sugar. Cook on high

nice with this.
