DIRECTIONS

  • THE NIGHT BEFORE:
  • Wash & sort beans for any small stones.
  • Place in a large kettle & cover with water, about 3 inches above the beans.
  • Cover & soak overnight.
  • THE NEXT MORNING:
  • Drain & add 6 cups fresh cold water.
  • Stir in the baking soda (this helps remove the "music" afterwards, but no guarantees. LOL!).
  • Cover & bring to a boil -- WATCH CAREFULLY so as to not boil over!
  • Reduce heat & simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Drain & reserve the bean water.
  • Preheat oven to 300°.
  • Add remaing ingredients plus 2 cups of the reserved bean water.
  • Place everything into the bean pot (or whatever you're using) & cover.
  • (Use double-thick aluminum foil to cover if need to.).
  • Bake for 3 to 4 hours.
  • IMPORTANT: Check every couple of hours, adding more bean water if needed, so the beans don't cook dry.
