Country Pinto Beans

1 lb. dry pinto beans

1/4 lb. bacon or salt pork

Wash the beans by putting them in a bowl with warm water. Stir them around and drain the water. Do this several times until the water is clear. Cover with water and soak overnight.

Put the beans in a pot and cover with water. Add the onions and the salt pork. Cover the pot and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Stir occasionally and add water if necessary.

When the beans are tender, add the salt. Continue to cook until the liquid is creamy.
