  2. clean beans by pouring a small amount in ur hand at a time. look for white beans that have brown on them, black on them, excessivly wrinkly, etc. good beans will be white, may or may not have slight wrinkling.. see pictures..

  6. bring to a rolling bowl and lower heat to a gentle simmer.

  7. simmer for an hour and add more water as needed. stir.

  8. continue simmering, stirring, adding water as needed until they are tender about another half hour/45min.

  9. keep simmering but now do not add any more water.. u now want it to thicken. stir frequently as u do not want them to scortch (burn)

  14. this is what my family has been making for generations.. we came from a poor southern family.. and they couldn't afford meat like ham to put in here.. orriginally made using butter it has changed over the years to bacon grease as it gives it a much better flavor..I hope u enjoy the poor side.. :) lol

  15. serves about 6 as a side

  16. essentially just about any dry bean can be made this way. each kind of bean adds its unique flavor.. brown pinto beans are done this very way.. also on my profile called poor mans brown beans.. :)


Ingredients

  1. 1 lb package dry large white lima beans
