Brown Beans (Grandma Branhams way)
This is the type of bean that Grandma would remove. She would throw that out!
Rinse the old water that the beans have been soaking in all night OFF! Pour in fresh new water - a couple inches above the bean line.
Put in a ham hock, and season with lots of salt and pepper!
Also add a couple teaspoons of baking soda. (it helps trust me)
Boil the beans good for an hour or so, and then simmer all afternoon. Serve them with Jiffy Cornbread Mix and Fried Potatoes and Onions and you have yourself a meal!
