White Beans- Southern Style
This recipe will take a few hours to make, but the flavor is wonderful with ham and cornbread!
(1/2 c. = 2 points)
2 c. dry white beans ( Great Northern or Navy)
4 slices center cut bacon or a ham bone
salt and pepper to taste.
Place beans in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil for 10-15 minutes. Drain. Refill pot with cold water to cover beans by 1". Add bacon or ham bone. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on low until beans are tender and can be mashed easily with a fork. If your water runs low, add more. This recipe is another one that is even better the second day!
