This is basically the same recipe I have used for many years, except that I only use 5 or 6 slices of thick sliced bacon and I also add diced carrots and potatoes. Also, if you want to make your beans turn out very tender, don't add anything salty or oily until the beans are almost finished cooking. One more thing... I have eaten beans of one type or another almost everyday of my life and I have NEVER discarded the water I soak my beans in because you lose SO much flavor. Rinse the beans in a colander and use the soaking water. Trust me - it makes a huge difference.
