Directions:
Take the strings off the beans first. Then string them on thread. Hang the beans in a dry place until they dry. They should rattle. Put in a pillow case after they are dry and add a little black pepper to keep the bugs out. Put them away until you're ready to use them.

To prepare: Bring a pot of water to boil with a little salt. Add beans. Then drain off water and fill with new water. Add a chunk of lard and cook until tender. About 6 hours. Or they can be pressure cooked to shorten the time.
