DIRECTIONS

  • Drain the beans & rinse well, then place them in a large saucepan.
  • Add the 1 generous pinch of saffron threads (crushed) & 1 1/2 quarts water, then bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Add butter, then reduce heat to low & simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.
  • Stir in the onions, parsley & pepper & cook for another 30 minutes or until beans are tender. Stir occasionally to make sure beans are not sticking.
  • Just before beans are ready, add salt to taste.
  • If sauce is too thick, add a little water, but if it's too thin, increase the heat to high & boil until thickened, stirring regularly so that the beans don't stick.
  • Taste & adjust the seasoning, if necessary.
  • Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
