DIRECTIONS

  • Check out the beans for bad beans and stones. Wash beans, Soak in water for 10 minutes. Bad beans will float. Pick beans for bad beans again.
  • Make the spice recipe as listed above. Store in dark place in a jar for later use.
  • Do not presoak beans. Add 2 tablespoons spice mixture, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, and water to cover one lb beans in a saucer pan. Bring to slow boil. Simmer. Keep beans just covered. Check water every 30 minutes and stir beans to keep beans covered. Add 1/2 cup of water as required. This is very important to keep beans barely covered with water. Beans will be done in 3 to 4 hours. The secret to this recipe is keep the beans just covered with water and slowly simmer. Flavor of spices will be absorbed into beans.
