DIRECTIONS

  • You will find a package of smoked turkey neck bones in the freezer section for about $2-3.
  • Soak pinto beans overnight. Drain and rinse again.
  • Pour drained beans into a 4-5 quart pot
  • Add smoked turkey neck bones (or 2 smoked ham hocks)
  • Cover with water that is 1-1/2 to 2 inches over the beans and neck bones bones or hocks.
  • Bring to boil and then reduce heat to low and cover.
  • Cook for about 5 hours until the beans are tender and the water is a kind of gravy.
  • Check every hour or so to make sure that the water level is at least 1 inch higher than the beans.
  • Remove from heat and remove neck bones or hocks.
  • Serve with bread or rolls to dip into the gravy water.
  • NOTE: This does very well cooking all day in a crock pot set on low in the morning.
  • And the beans only taste better the next day and the next and the next.
