 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Bean (any variety), dry
    1                    Ham hock or shank
    1       lg           Onion, chopped
    6       c            Water
    1       t            Salt
    7       oz           Green chili salsa
                         -(up to 10 oz -- or use
                         -tomato sauce, canned
                         -or stewed tomatoes)
   Rinse the beans and remove any foreign matter.  Mix
   all ingredients in the cooking vessel.
   IF USING A SLOW-COOKER:  Cover, set temperature at
   low, and forget for at least 10 hours.  If you have
   only half a day, cook the mixture 5 or more hours on
   IF USING A STOVE:  Heat all ingredients to boiling
   with pot uncovered. Turn down heat, cover, and simmer
   gently, adding enough boiling water to keep beans well
   covered. Most bean varieties will be done in 2 to 3
   When beans are done, take out ham bone, cut off the
   meat and put it back into the pot. Serve hot with corn
   bread or muffins. Green chili salsa is a Mexican sauce
   made from green chili peppers, onions, vinegar and
   other ingredients.
   *  A Hearty Bean Stew -- I got this recipe from “A
   Primer on Bean Cookery” by the California Dry Bean
   Advisory Board and other organizations. This savory
   stew, featuring ham and beans, borrows its robust
   seasonings from the chuck wagon cooks of the old
   western cattle ranges. The secret is long, slow
   cooking, and your electric slow-cooker is ideal for
   the job. Just follow the directions that come with
   your particular model. If you don't have one,
   slow-cook the mixture on top of the stove in a heavy
   pot with a lid.
   : Difficulty:  Easy
   : Time:  5 minutes preparation, many hours cooking.
   : Precision:  no need to measure.
