  1. Sort the beans to make sure there are no small rocks, screws, etc. in them. And yes, I have personally found these things in dried beans before. Sort or hope you have good dental coverage.
  2. Put the beans, all the spices, and the olive oil in a large pot. Mix well.
  3. Add the chicken broth and water, and stir to mix well.
  4. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook beans, uncovered, for 3 to 4 hours until done to your liking (It usually only takes me 3 hours, and sometimes less than 3 if I have it at a fast simmer. After 2 hours, take out a bean every 30 minutes or so and eat it to check if it is done enough for you).
