At the end of this long drive we were greeted with a clear sky at home and the heavenly scent of those beans as we crossed our threshold.
I cook the beans the way my grandmother and my father cooked them; with a good, smoked ham hock and an onion added to the pot. My dear friend Maria-Elena suggested I serve the broth to v for strengthening. I have done this and, thank you m-e! it works.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
