    grantg's Note:

    The aroma filling the house as these cook will tantalize and smell so delicious that you will hardly be able to wait for the beans to become tender for a taste of these "simply delicious" pintos! My M-i-L was a simple Southern cook... everything was delicious & mostly "no recipe." Just came together because she willed it to be biscuits, cornbread, pintos, greens, corn casserole, oyster dressing, etc. Her pintos were my exposure to HOW GREAT pintos and cornbread could be! I'll admit that SHE did not use tomatoes in her beans... simple food being the key. The tomatoes I owe to the vendors in the Charleston Market with their 15-bean mixes and recipe variations for great pots of beans . A little more labor and time than some dishes, but inexpensive and WELL WORTH the time for a hearty delicious meal. (Prep Time does NOT include slow or quick soak time... only actual work time) Keeps a week plus in refrigerator & freezes well.
