Moms Pinto and Navy Beans
Choose your favorite dried beans. The photo is a combination of Navy and Pinto beans. My favorite bean is a Cranberry or Yellow Eye. They are hard to find but worth the search.
1 lb. bag of dried beans Beef bouillon
chopped onion 1-2 TBLS. vegetable oil
Smoked turkey Wing (or neck) found in freezer section
Wash and sort beans then place in 5 qt. pot. (Most people soak overnight which speeds the cooking time. I find that slowly cooking or putting in a crock pot works just as well.) in your large pot add vegetable oil and saute onions until translucent. Add water and or 4 small bouillon cubes and a smoked turkey wing and beans. Beans should be covered at last inch of water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve steaming hot with a heaping Tablespoon Our Mom’s Best pepper relish.
Serve with grilled Ham Steak glazed with Our Mom’s Best, Apple Cranberry Pepper Jelly with a little extra for dipping. A side of cornbread and you will have Our Mom’s Best favorite meal!
