In a large stock pot, cook bacon and onion, add remaining ingredients, cover with water and allow to boil, reduce heat and simmer on low heat until beans are tender. Serve with My 1910 Cornbread, sliced onion and tomato!
You may need to add water as it cooks off. Some people like alot of "soup" with their beans others don't. Adjust spices according to your taste. This can be a meal in itself or serve as a side!
