Directions Edit

  1. Soak the beans in a large heavy pot covered by at least three inches of water for at least four hours.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Skim off any foam.
  3. Reduce the heat ang gently simmer the beans, uncovered, until tender, 1-1.25 hours. Add water to keep beans submerged.

Season with salt and pepper during last ten minutes of cooking. Drain the beans and rinse with cold water. Remove and discard the vegetables and the bouquet garni. Pour over cooked rice.

  1. The secret to keeping black beans black is to cook them in the water in which they've soaked. Enjoy!
