Recipe: Black Bean Soup

One pint of black beans, a small joint or shank of beef, a slice of salt pork. Soak the beans over night, drain off the water, and put them into the kettle with the meat, and cover with water. Boil about five hours; strain through the colander. Season with red pepper and a little wine. Add the yolks of three hard-boiled eggs and slices of lemon. — Mrs. Werner
