3 cups fresh shelled pinto beans
4 to 6 whole garlic cloves
2 tablespoons bacon drippings or cooking oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
enough water to cover the beans with 2-inches of water
In a large dutch oven or cooking pot, add all the ingredients and bring water to boil. REDUCE heat to a simmer, cover with a lid. Simmer, stirring occasionally and checking water level, for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If the water becomes level with the top of the beans, add 1 to 1 1/2 cups more water; continue cooking until beans are tender to the bite.
