      1/2   lb           Salt pork
    1       lg           Onion, chopped
    2                    Cloves garlic, minced
                         - or pressed
    2 1/2   c            Dried black beans
                         - about 1 pound
    1       t            Crumbled dry epazote leaves
    5       c            Water
    4       c            Beef or chicken broth
                         Salt
 
   Cook pork over medium high heat in a 4 or 5 qt. pan until fat begins
   to melt. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until onion
   is soft (about 5 min.).
   Sort beans and discard debris; rinse well. Add beans and epazote to
   pan and pour in broth and water. Raise heat to high and bring to
   boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours (or until
   beans are tender). If beans are too soupy, boil over medium high
   heat, stirring often until thick enough. Season with salt. 6 to 8
   servings.
