BEANS:
1 Bag of Black Beans
1 Garlic Clover
10-12 cups of Water

Put the beans in pot with water. You need water all the way to the top of the pot. Most of it will evaporate and the other will get taken away by the beans as they cook. Be sure you check on the beans thoroughly, since they can dry out. You may need to add more water as they cook. Beans take approximately 30 minutes to an hour to cook. So, be patient. When the beans are soft, they are ready to serve.
