This is more traditional on the west coast from those that settled in Central California and came from the Azores. These folks weren't farmers or fisherman but were dairy farmers.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash beans and soak overnight. (I have skipped this step and just washed the beans and added 4 cups of water or enough to cover the beans and put it on the stove)
