4. Sounds good.


Though I like to mix cranberry beans in with the pinto beans.

1. half 1 pound bag of pinto beans
2. half 1 pound bag of cranberry beans
3. about 1/4 to 1/3 of a ham steak--get the little round bone in there (or a ham hock if you have one)
4. salt/pepper/garlic salt to taste

Cover and simmer on range top 2-3 hours until done. Keep top of beans covered with water. Periodically stir and add cold water if you need to raise the water level to keep beans covered.

Serve with some good buttermilk cornbread. I also like to eat with that Trappeys Hot Peppers in Vinegar.

Makes a nice sized pot of beans. Plenty for left overs or for making refried beans for Mexican food later in the week.
