DIRECTIONS

  • After the beans soak overnight, add everything but the salt and pepper to a large pot. Completely cover with water. You do not want any beans out of the water or they will not cook. bring to a boil then reduce to a low simmer.
  • Simmer for several hours until the beans are tender (this will take a long time so you want to start it at lunch time.) Be sure to stir occasionally. You should be able to easily smash them between two fingers without difficulty. Salt and pepper to taste.
