DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse beans. Place beans in pot and cover them three times higher with water. Bring to a rapid boil for five minutes covered. Turn off stove. DO NOT REMOVE LID.
  • Let the pot set one hour.
  • Turn burner back on to slightly more than a simmer. Add ham bone, onion, and pepper.
  • Boil covered for two hours. Add more water if necessary.
  • Remove ham bone. Remove all ham and place back into pot. Discard bone.
  • Turn down heat to simmer and add approximately 2 tablespoons brown sugar, or more. Now let beans cook as long as needed.
  • Season to taste.
  • I serve with Baby's Jalapeño Cornbread, Recipe #221836.
