Southern Pinto Beans  

Servings: 8

1 lb. Pinto Beans soaked overnight.
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 lb bacon

2 coarsely chopped onions
1 teaspoon pepper (at least)
1/2 teaspoon salt

Place all ingredients in large pot and cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to boil and then cook over low heat until beans are tender. If you soak the beans overnight, start checking for doneness in about an hour. Add water if needed.
