      Yield: 8 Servings
      3 c  Dry pinto beans (1-1/2 lb)
      1 ea Meaty hambone or
      1 ts Salt, or more to taste
  2 1/2 qt Water

  Wash and pick over the beans, removing loose skins or shriveled
  beans. Put in a large covered pot and cover with hot water. Soak over
  night if you want to cut down on cooking time. When beans start to
  simmer add ham bone, salt pork or bacon. Add more water as needed but
  only hot or boiling wnater. Never add cold water the beans will turn
  dark. If you cook without a lid the beans will also turn a dark
  color. When the skins are almost as tender as the inside of the
  beans, they are done. They should not be broken. Add salt and allow
  to stand before serving.
