I attemptd fresh cooked beans on several occasions and it always ended the same...in the GARBAGE! I was really hesitant to give it another shot but I figured why not. It was a bit time consuming but worth it. I cooked them for over 4 hours on a low fire. If you follow the cook time your beans will be somewhat hard. I like my beans really tender. It was a really good recipe. I did not give it 5 stars because I did feel the need to tweek it a bit after tasting it. I decided to add an additional 1/2 tspn of Salt as I found it just a bit bland...I am not big on salt so 1/2 tspn did the trick. Also, I found the flavor to be quite good but it was missing something...so I figured I'de add Cilantro, because that's the way my family cooks beans...and low and behold...IT WAS PERFECT!!!! Everyone at dinner was amazed by the taste and my son ate 3 servings. This is my worst critic people. Remember the beans that ended up in the Garbage earlier? He hated them that much and for him to eat 3 servings is unheard of. My entire family competes for his approval in the beans department and Mommie went from the bottom of the list to the top with this recipe!!!! You have got to try this!
