Rinse beans. Place them in a stockpot with 4 qt. water, ham hock, and 4 tsp. ham base. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 2 1/2-3 hours. Heat butter in medium skillet on medium heat. Add onion and grated carrot, cook until they soften. Remove ham hock from pot, discard. Remove 2 cups beans from pot and mash. Return to pot and and onion/carrot mixture.
