½ cup Sugar

½ tsp Sea Salt

  2. Add water 2 inches above beans and cook with the lid on. When it starts to boil, add sugar and salt. 

  3. Turn the heat down and simmer, stirring every 20 minutes, until water evaporates and beans are soft, for about 1 1/2 hours. If the water is gone and still beans are not soft enough, add water and cook longer.
