1. In large bowl, place beans with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Soak overnight.
2. Drain and rinse beans. Place beans in 5-quart Dutch oven. Add ham hocks, onion, celery, green pepper, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, oregano, crushed red pepper, and water; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; partially cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender and creamy, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
