Recipe ingredients and directions:
White Beans with Sage
1 lb dry small white, or Great Northern beans
2 1/2 quarts water
1 large garlic clove, peeled
1 handful fresh sage leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried
coarse salt and pepper, to taste
fruity olive oil
Put beans, sage, water, garlic, and salt in a heavy cooking pot.
Cover and place over very low heat, so that it takes almost an hour
to bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, regulate the heat so
that the liquid barely simmers. The beans must not move around
during cooking as it will cause them to break up. The length of
time it takes the beans to cook depends upon their age, but count
on at least three hours (easy for me since I work at home). The
beans should retain their shape and be tender to the bite. Season
to taste. Have fruity olive oil on the side to drizzle on top.
Serves six to eight.
