My husband grew up in NC and his Mama fixed these beans the old fashion way. He loved them. When we got married I had never fixed them before, so I came up with a sure fire successful recipe, and he loves them as much as his Mama's. We make these the entire meal with cornbread. We crumble a slice of cornbread in our beans and enjoy. Yum, yum.

    I put my beans on in the morning and let them cook until the following evening. I know that's more than 24 hours, but the longer you cook them, the thicker the soup becomes and that's how you want them. Add a slice of cornbread and enjoy!
