Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You can pick the assortment of beans. I would leave out the black eyed peas. They seem to get mushy. If you want to take out the "pop" add 1 tbsp. castor oil & stir well. I did this and you reallly can't taste the castor oil, and it really works. Mary Elizabeth's Recipe
