    The BLESSED Chef's Note:

    On a cold day a pot of Pintos will hit the spot. Add a cake of Grandpas Cornbread and some chopped onions and you have a meal! The prep and cooking times will vary depending on which methods you use.

    1. 1
      First look through beans and remove any debris sometimes found in them. Then rinse well. Put in a pot and cover with water and soak overnight-Or you can do a quick soak by bringing them to a boil and immediately turning off and let sit for 2 hours.
    2. 2
      Rinse side meat and slice into chunks.
    3. 3
      Now there are two ways to go from here- You can cook them on stove top or in a crock pot- I prefer the crock pot because they have a better flavor.
    4. 4
      Stove Top Method - Pour water off beans after soaking and add fresh water - enough to cover them completely. Add side meat, salt, and pepper.
    5. 5
      Bring to boil and then lower heat to simmer for app 2-3 hours stirring occasionally -Until the beans are as soft as you want them.
    6. 6
      Crock Pot Method- Pour water off beans after soaking and add beans to crock pot. Cover with fresh water and add salt, pepper and side meat. Cook on high about 1 hour then lower to low and cook about 6 hours - until beans are as soft as you want them.
    7. 7
      Serve with cornbread and chopped onions-MMMM MMMM Good!

      This made a great pot of beans. I had a hambone in the freezer so I used that instead of the side meat. They tasted just like MawMaw's beans. Made for "Down on the Farm" event in photo forum May 2010
