Servings: Serves 12
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 3 hours
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

Rinse the beans in hot water until they are white. Place them in a stockpot, add the water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 hours. Heat the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion until lightly browned. Add the onion to the pot of beans.
