 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       lg           Onions, chopped
    2                    Cloves garlic, pressed or
                         -minced
    1       T            Salad oil
    2       qt           Regular-strength chicken
                         -broth
    1       lb           Dried black beans, sorted
                         -for debris and rinsed
    1       T            Coriander seed
    1       t            Whole allspice
    1       t            Dried oregano leaves
      3/4   t            Crushed dried hot red
                         -chilies
    6                    Cardamom pods, hulls remove
                         -(1/4 tsp seed).
    2 1/2   lb           Oranges for zest, juice,
                         -slices
 
   Combine in onions, garlic, and oil in a lidded 6 quart sauce pan, over high
   heat.  Stir often until onions are tinged with brown, about 8 minutes.  Add
   remaining ingredients, but not zest, juice, or slices, to onions, etc., and
   bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to simmer.  Cover and simmer
   until
   beans are tender to bite, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
   
   While beans simmer, remove 2 teaspoons zest, squeeze 1/2 cup juice, remove
   peel and white membrane from rest of fruit and slice thinly crosswise,
   removing seeds.  After the beans become tender, raise heat to high,
   uncover,
   and boil until most of the liquid evaporates, about 10 - 15 minutes.
   (Reduce
   the heat and stir occasionally as mixture thickens.) Remove beans from heat
   and stir in 1 tsp zest and the 1/2 C  juice.  Ladle beans into serving
   bowls.
   Place the sliced fruit equally on top of the beans in each bowl.  Add to
   taste: sour cream, fresh cilantro sprigs, salt.  Garnish with the
   remaining 1
   tsp zest.
