Black Beans

I wanted to find a way to avoid the plastics that are in canned beans and save a little money at the same time :)

Black Beans from Scratch

1 lb dry black beans
2 c beef broth
3 c water

1 1/2 large yellow onions
3 cloves garlic
4 red bell peppers (could also use green)
1 tsp Real Salt or Sea Salt
1 T fresh oregano, chopped (or use 2 tsp dried)
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp fennel seed
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
pinch cayenne pepper

3 cups fresh tomatoes (or use canned)
2 T red wine vinegar

Soak black beans for 8 hours. Bring black beans in water and broth to a boil then simmer, covered, for 40 minutes. Add vegetables and seasoning except for fresh tomatoes and vinegar and simmer for another 30 minutes. Add tomatoes and vinegar and simmer for 15 minutes, uncovered.
