Boiling away--slow boil that is--is a giant pot of pinto beans. Soup beans as we say here in the south. I added a couple of ham hocks to season the beans. Salt will be added at the end of the cooking.
Beans will be accompanied by a pot of greens--pot 'likker' to be consumed as well. And a cast iron skillet of home made crusty cornbread. Butter, honey, vinegar, onions and chow chow at the ready as condiments.
Perfect players for a perfect fall day.
