Ingredients

  • 1 Large Onion
  • Ham (We Cook The Bone After Having Baked Ham, But You Can Use A Ham Hock Or Two)
  • 2 Cups Dry Beans And Water For Cooking
  • LOTS Of Garlic (To Taste In Other Words)Salt And Pepper

Directions

Cook bend till nearly done keeping them covered with water the whole time.

Add ham and the coarsely chopped onion and all the garlic your significant other can stand to smell on you.

Continue to cook till the beans are done.

The bone cooked till the meat falls off is the best, cause you get all that broth too.


Note: we can never know how the Anasazi prepared this. but this is the best beans I have ever tasted in my life! not much gas either, which is a plus!
