Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1 lb dried beans (pink beans, navy beans, baby limas, kidney beans, etc.)
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 large onion diced
    3 cloves garlic minced or pressed
    1 cup carrots pieces
    2-4 slices of bacon (calculated with 1oz) or home cured salt pork
    Salt & pepper to taste

Tips

Look for the made-over Long Winter Baked Beans.


Directions

Place beans in a large bowl well covered with water over night to soak. Drain and rinse.

About an hour and half prior to eating, cover beans with water again and simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1tsp baking soda. Let cook for 40 more minutes until a bean's skin cracks when you blow on it (on a spoon). Drain the beans and replenish water with 5-6 cups. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 30-45 minutes until veggies are all soft and the flavor has been thoroughly extracted from the salt pork.
