Directions

  1. Soak dried beans overnight. Cook dried beans with allspice and cayenne till tender, about 4-5 hours in the crockpot, or, if desired, skip that step and just add spices to 9 cups canned beans.).
  2. Saute onions, celery, green peppers, and garlic together in a little olive oil until softened.
  3. Mix the tomato puree, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, salt , oregano, cayenne and allspice together and pour over beans. Reduce heat and cook gently 15-20 minutes to blend the flavors. Or, as a reviewer suggested, put all in a crockpot on low heat and simmer about 2 hours.
  4. May add 1 smoked turkey sausage, sliced thin, if desired, but good without!
  5. Good served with rice. Pass the hot pepper sauce!
