Bean-hole Beans

Put dry beans in a lg. iron pot, cover w/ water, and hang over a fire; boil 5 min, stirring constantly. Remove from fire, and add pork, molasses, mustard, and salt. Cover w/ closely fitting cast-iron cover. In dry ground, preferably gravel, dig a hole 2 ft. deep and 2 ft. across, and in it build a brisk hardwood fire. When the fire has burned to coals, take part of the coals out w/ a shovel; place iron pot in the hole and cover w/ the remaining coals. On top of the coals, place the gravel originally taken from the hole. Leave the pot in the hole all day.:
