Directions

1. Heat water to boiling.

3. Bring water and beans back to a slow boil.
4. Add Garlic, bouillon, onion, salt, and pepper ( I add lots of salt and pepper).
5. Slice the Ham Hock skin diagnally in several places to assist in cooking process, and add to the pot. (Try to mix them in a little).
