1 pack black beans

1 big onion

1 big green pepper

1 clove garlic

ΒΌ lb. ham, pork, or white bacon, or ham back

salt and pepper

Wash and soak beans in lots of water overnight. Cook beans in same water all day with chopped up ingredients until water develops a consistency of gravy and beans are still whole.

Before serving, add a dash of imported olive oil and garlic vinegar.

The secret is long cooking.

Chop raw white onions fine to put on beans when served over white rice.
