  1. Sort and wash beans; place them in a large pot, add water to cover them and let soak about 8 hours; drain, rinse and then put back into pot with 2 quarts water.
  2. Bring beans, ham hocks and all the spices to a boil in the same pot as before; cover, reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally about 2 and a half hours or until beans are tender.
  3. Stir in rice, onions, green pepper, brown sugar, rice and ham if using; cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until rice is tender; remove ham hocks, chop off meat and add back to pot.
  4. Serve with more green onions, some extra hot sauce if that's your thing, and a big pan of cornbread and you have a wonderful country style meal.
