" For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. " Song of Solomon

On the Range Today

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.
