DIRECTIONS

  • Place beans in a colander and rinse with cold running water.
  • Pick over the beans and remove any stones or foreign objects.
  • Place beans in a clean pot, cover with fresh cold water, and soak for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight to expedite the cooking process.
  • Drain the beans.
  • In a large stainless steel pot, combine the beans, 1 quart water, and all the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • When the water reaches a boil, skim the surface, reduce the heat, and simmer until the beans are tender, about 1 hour.
  • Drain the liquid from the beans and reserve for use in other recipes.
  • Discard the bay leaf.
