Slow Cooker Beans

We eat a lot of beans around here so I stock up on the cans whenever I see good prices.  Today I decided to make them myself.  The canned beans are loaded with sodium, so I wanted an alternative.  I made these in the slow cooker and it was so easy.  I think I'll keep doing this.  This week it was great northern beans.  Here's how you do it.
Rinse and soak 1 lb of beans overnight covered with about 3inches of water.  The next morning drain and rinse the beans and put them in the slow cooker.  Add about 7 cups of water and a bay leaf and set it on high.  Check back in about 4 hours and they should be ready.
