There are recipes that have you cook this or that first, but I put all in the dutch oven, cover with water til 1″ above. Bring to a boil then lower to med heat, cover and cook for about an hour. If rapidly boiling still when you turn to med, lower to med low where there is a nice simmer. Test beans to soft but not too hard consistency. Cook a little longer if hard. Note: Beans can be made in instant pot.

When cooked, add one 15oz can diced and juice of ½ of a valencia orange (they are juice oranges)
