    There's nothing like going to Grandma Terry's a big plate of beans and fried cornbread. A simple and very inexpensive meal.

      Thanks for teaching us northerners how to make great southern beans. A nice smoky flavor to this easy, yet tasty recipe. Next time I will also follow reviewer breezermom's suggestion to add onion or garlic--saw it too late the first time.

      This is the way our family has always cooked beans....sometimes adding a little onion or garlic, and always served with a big slice of cornbread. In fact, often times we made a whole meal of these beans and the juices with crumbled cornbread thrown in the bowl to soak up the juices. Great recipe for these uncertain economic times. You just can't beat the taste of dried beans slow cooked with bacon! Made for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks for posting!
