Preparation steps

1.
Place beans in a large pot and cover with water. Make sure there is enough water to come up at least 3 inches above the top of the beans. Add the onion to the pot and bring to a boil.
2.
Let the beans simmer, partially covered, for about 1 ½ hours, or until the beans are soft. Add the salt once the beans are soft.
3.
Continue to simmer another 15 minutes or until the beans are almost starting to break apart and the liquid has thickened. It may be necessary to add more water while simmering if the liquid has dried out before the beans have softened enough.
4.
Remove the onion, transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls and serve.
