boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cover for 1 hour or
until tender. Drain the beans and add the 8 cups of water. Then
add ham onions and garlic. Bring the water to a boil and cook the
bean for 10 minutes. Then reduce the kettle?s heat to low and
simmer for 2 hours. Then remove the ham. Allow the ham to cool
then cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Return ham to the kettle. You add
the cumin oregano cilantro and pepper next. Continue to simmer
for an additional 1 hour. The beans should be very tender and
with little liquid. (If the beans to become too dry add a little
water. If the beans are too soupy continue to cook.) Now is the
time to add the salt. Cut limes into wedges and squeeze into
beans. For Picnicking & Tailgating: You want to make this
