Author Bayou Woman


  • Water for boiling pot and tea kettle
  • White Northern Beans
  • 2 onions chopped
  • Tbsp oil or bacon grease about 2
  • green onions sliced
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Cajun Seasoning


  • Bring the pot of water and kettle to a boil.
  • Sort through beans for any little rocks. Rinse.
  • Add the beans to the pot, bring to a boil again on medium-high.
  • Drain beans and using water from the kettle, refill bean pot and bring to a boil again.
  • Refill kettle with water and bring to boil to use later.
  • Add your grease to a skillet and brown the chopped onions.
  • Add the onions to the beans and continue to boil on medium heat, stirring often for about 45 minutes.
  • Some of the water should have boiled out, so add some hot water from the kettle.
  • Lower fire to medium-low and stir occasionally.
  • When the water looks milky and the beans are getting soft, lower the heat to low.
  • Add the green onions and seasonings.
  • If the liquid seems too thick and the beans are not yet soft, add more hot water and cook on low until soft.
  • When the beans are fully cooked use the back of a spoon and smash some of the beans, making the liquid very creamy.
  • Serve over rice.
