      Place beans, ham hock and onion in pot.
    3. 3
      (I like to use my pressure cooker but it's not necessary) Cook beans according to package directions.
    4. 4
      Taste a bean to make sure cooked through.
    5. 5
      Cook until tender.
    6. 6
      You can also add a small chopped potatoe to the pot when you cook beans.
    7. 7
      This will help thicken liquid and all you need is a pan of cornbread and a salad with this.

      These were on the plain side for me. They had flavor from the ham but seemed to be missing something. We liked them ok, but I think I will continue looking for one with more flavor! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Sheryl

      These were good. Much better than canned beans any day. Mine took twice as long to cook bc I used large limas. Whoops. Also, next time I think I will use half chicken stock instead of all water, and add some thyme.
