2 cups dried beans (red kidney or pinto)
4 cups boiling water

Soak beans overnight. Drain and add other ingredients. Cook for 1/2 hour on top of stove. Put in bean pot and cook in slow oven (200-250 degrees F.) for 3 hours, or turn heat down and cook in a heavy saucepan on top of stove until tender.
