  beans submerged. 2 hrs. FOR CHILI: Heat 3 T. oil in large heavy
  saucepan over moderate heat. Add onions and cook until soft, about 10
  minutes. Add 2 cloves garlic, minced, and stir about 3 minutes.

  Add remaining oil to pan. Increase heat to med. high. Add lamb and
  cook until no longer pink, breaking up with spoon, about 6 min.
  Return onion mixture to pan; add chili powder, ginger, thyme, red
  chili, marjoram, peppers and allspice. Stir 5 minutes. Add tomatoes (
  and half of their liquid, if canned). Bring to a boil then reduce
  heat and simmer for another 5 minutes.  Add 3/4 Cup of Zinfandel.
  Simmer, skimming occasionally, for 30 minutes. Drain beans and
  reserve the cooking liquid. Discard the bones and garni. add beans
  and remaining Zinfandel to chili mixture.  Salt and season as
  necessary. Simmer 30 minutes, adding bean cooking liquid as needed to
  keep chili moist (or soupy, as you like it). This chili is best made
  ahead and allowed to season in the refrigerator for 24 hours.  Reheat
  before serving. Serves 8.
