"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Salt pork - similar to bacon but saltier and not cured/smoked. Used to flavor beans, greens, and other southern dishes. Really adds to flavor. Found in the pork section of meat market-not next to packaged bacon.

If you have hard water, use bottled or distilled water to cook any beans.
