Put beans in pot of water and rinse. Remove bad beans that float to top. Drain water off and put beans in deep pot with 8-9 cups water. Bring to boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let set for 2 hours. Put back on heat at moderate to slow boil.

Meanwhile, saute in extra virgin olive oil, onion, garlic, parsley Add sausage to saute. Then add entire sauteed mixture to beans.add spices to entire mixture. Boil gently (simmer), stirring occasionally, for 2-3 hours, until tender and squishy. If mixture becomes too thick, add microwave-hot water to the pot

Serve hot bean mixture over rice. (I like it all mixed together, but try it both ways).
