2 pounds Soldier Beans
1/2 pound salt pork

1/2 to 2/3 cup molasses
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper
dash of salt
1 medium onion, optional

  2. In the morning, parboil the beans until the skins crack when blown upon.
  3. If an onion is used, cut in quarters and put in the bottom of the bean pot. Add the parboiled beans. (Some folks drain the beans and others use the bean water.
