Soooo Southern Magic Beans

Lori Harbin-Combs


I have been perfecting my beans for many years. Many people have told me that they are the very best they ever had! Also the nasty gas is gone "like magic". If you love deep down finished flavored beans, these are for you. Add some hot buttered cornbread and wait for the yums from everyone.
