      1/2  pound         salt pork
    1      whole         onion -- chopped
    2      cloves        garlic -- chopped
      1/4  cup           celery -- chopped
    1      quart         ham or beef stock
      1/2  teaspoon      Tabasco sauce

      Soak beans in water overnight. Drain. In a Dutch oven, brown salt pork.
 Add onions, garlic, and celery and saute for 3 minutes. Add beans, stock,
 Tabasco sauce, salt, and herbs. Simmer 3 hours or until beans are tender. Add
 water when necessary during cooking; water should barely cover beans at end
 of cooking. Remove 1 cup beans and mash to paste. Add mashed bean paste back
 to beans; stir until liquid is thickened. Serve over hot rice.
