Ingredients:  
Ĺ lb. dried pinto beans
1 smoked ham hock
Water (enough to cover the ham hock in pot)
1 tbsp. shortening or vegetable oil
1 tbsp. sugar (I use Stevia)
2 tsp. salt
Pinch of accent

Directions:
Directions:
In a large boiler, put ham hock and water. Boil for 45 minutes.

While the ham hock is boiling, place dried beans in a bowl covered with cold water.

Add shortening, sugar and salt to boiling water while ham hock is cooking.

After 45 minutes, sort through beans and place good ones in boiler with ham hock. Turn down to medium heat. Add more water (2-3 cups)

Every 45 minutes to an hour check the water level in boiler and add water after the first hour and the second hour.

The third hour turn beans down to low heat and keep checking on the water level of beans so they donít burn.

Once beans are tender enough and the juice/gravy has formed, you can turn the beans off.

Cook beans at least 3-4 hours for best results.
