Beans are good and cheap.


  1. Soak beans overnight.
  2. The next day, add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low until beans are tender, about 4 hours.
  3. You will need to add water through the cooking process.

Excellent, Dee! With the addition of pepper, this a perfectly seasoned simple bean soup and I emphasize "perfect". Wonderful and even better the next day.
