   combine the beans and enough water to cover.  Bring to
   boiling then reduce  the heat and simmer, uncovered,
   for 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat, cover, and let
   stand for 1 hour.  (Or without cooking, soak the beans
   overnight.)  Drain the beans and rinse.  In the same
   Dutch oven combine the beans and 5 cups of water or
   vegetable broth.  Bring to boiling, reduce the heat,
   cover and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
