8. Ummmm.......Look at them beans

2 cups dried pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup diced non-fat ham
1 cup diced onion, pepper, celery mix (or frozen seasoning blemd)
1 small diced roma tomato
1 pinch of baking soda
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
generous dash of hickory liquid smoke
garlic powder to taste

Cover with water and cook until bean are tender. I cook them covered at about 300 degrees. Stir and add additional water as necessary especially during the first hour or so. When finished the beans should be tender with some liquid but not soupy.

The tomato is said to speed the cooking process and the baking soda is said to reduce flatulance. YMMV.

Serve with a salad of mixed spring greens and cornbread. Add some green tomato or onion jalapeno relish.
