(Recipe #62, page 65)
Wash the beans in hot water and set them on the stove in boiling water. When they have boiled for ½ hour, drain them and boil them in fresh water for another ½ hour, then cook them until soft in boiling water with butter or fat. Later add salt, some cornstarch or potato flour and chopped parsley; serve with a small bowl of potatoes. A few potatoes can also be added before the beans are totally soft and be cooked soft with the beans.
Side dishes: smoked or salted meat, bratwurst, ham, cutlets, soaked herring.
