 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         pinquito beans (or pinto beans) -- soaked overnight
                         fresh water or broth -- to cover
    2      cups          sliced apples
    1 1/2  cups          tomato juice
      1/4  cup           brown sugar
    2      cloves        garlic -- minced
    4      small         onions -- sliced
      1/2  pound         bulk port sausage
    1      teaspoon      chili powder -- or more
    1      teaspoon      salt -- or to taste
      1/2  teaspoon      pepper -- or to taste
 
 Rinse the beans and cover well with fresh water.  Let the beans soak the 
 overnight.  After the beans have soaked, drain and cover well with more fresh 
 water.  Bring the beans to a boil.  Cover and simmer for 1 to 2 hours, or 
 until tender.  Drain the beans.
 
 Prepare a combination of all remaining ingredients, being sure to mix sausage 
 well with the apples, etc.  (Do not cook sausage first, says Mrs. Brown.)  
 Bring to a boil and mix with the drained beans.  Allow to simmer for at least 
 2 hours.
 
 Cook’s Notes:  You might want to degrease before serving, if you make it Mrs. 
 Brown’s way...
