Ingredients and Instructions

  • Beans
  • Water
  • Piece of Pork
  • Fatback
  • Hambone
  • Pig’s Knuckles
  • Soak the beans in water
  • Drain the beans (reduce gas)
  • Cook the beans in water with pork (Never use beef. Really, we’d never steer you wrong!) until they are tender.
  • Eat the beans over crumbled cornbread and maybe chow chow.
  • Optional – chopped onions on the beans gives them an extra zest

Serving should depends on how many beans you have prepare. In our house, there was a pot perpetually simmering on the back of the stove. It goes a lot further if you pair it with a delicious corn bread.
