Soak 1 quart of pea beans over night in cold water. In morning drain and
place in earthen bean-pot with 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 of pepper, 2 of
sugar, 1 pound fat pork, scored; fill the pot with warm water and bake
in a moderate oven all day, as water evaporates adding sufficient to
keep them moist. They cannot be baked too long.
