Homemade Beans

These beans are full of flavor and freeze easily.

1 lb. dry **black beans

2 tbsp. whey

2 quarts water

Soak this mixture overnight.

In the morning:

Add above to a pot and bring to a boil.  Skim the foam from the top when it boils.  Add:

1 roughly chopped white onion

4 cloves garlic, smashed and peels removed

2 tbsp. salt

Cook about 2 hours, or until beans are tender.  Add more salt to taste.

**Variation:  To make pinto or white beans, follow recipe exactly as above, but omit whey in the soaking.  Pinto beans taste even better with fire-roasted tomatoes mixed in after cooking.
