2 to 3 lb. Boston Butt Pork Roast With Bone
1 Bag Dried White Beans
2 Medium Onions - Chopped
2 Carrots - Finely Chopped
1 Large Rib of Celery - Finely Chopped
Salt to Taste

Soak beans overnight, cover well with water. Add a scant 1/2 tsp. of baking soda. Stir well and soak.

Next day, place pork roast into a soup kettle, cover with water and bring to a boil (skim off foam). Add onion and simmer until almost tender.

Meanwhile, rinse beans well and put back into kettle they soaked in. Cover with water and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to simmer, add chopped onion and cook until the skin on the beans peels when you blow on it.

Place the beans in the kettle with the pork butt. Add chopped carrot and celery.

Salt to taste.

Simmer until the meat is very tender and the beans are very soft. Cut the meat and fat off the roast and discard the fat.
