DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and pick over the beans, removing loose skins or shriveled beans.
  • Put in a large covered pot and cover with hot water.
  • Soak over night if you want to cut down on cooking time.
  • When beans start to simmer add ham bone, salt pork or bacon.
  • Add more water as needed but only hot or boiling water.
  • Never add cold water the beans will turn dark.
  • If you cook without a lid the beans will also turn a dark color.
  • When the skins are almost as tender as the inside of the beans, they are done.
  • They should not be broken.
  • Add salt and allow to stand before serving.
