  1. Soak the beans in water for at least six hours, in a Dutch oven. Rinse the beans thoroughly after they are properly soaked (save the soaking water). Put back the rinsed beans and at least two cups of the soaking water in the Dutch oven. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat. Let the beans simmer for about four to six hours, stirring occasionally. You will know the beans are done when they are already tender. Leave the lid off for the last hour if there seems to be too much liquid. Mash the beans often when lid is off until approximately half of them are mashed and half are still whole. Fry in lard.
