1teaspoon ground white pepper
2teaspoon salt or add to tasty
optional o.5 shallot, minced ,one tesspoon soy sauce

Instructions
add all the ingredients in a pan,add water (except the salt and shallot),if you use ordinary pan ,it maybe need more water to heat about
2-3 hours to be well.if you use pressure cooker,it about use 2.5 cup water,i use pressure cooker,put them in cool water and heat the pressure cooker ,after see the steam low the heat boiled them for about 20 minutes
if you add the salt in the begin ,the soup maybe not so delicous.so you will add the salt and the shallot after the soup is ok,and after you add the salt you had better heat them for another 5 minute ,not need pressure

Thanks for starting this conversation.

There is great tradition all over US and particularly in the South of beans and pork. The picture and recipe of your soybean dish is not very much different from a lot traditional recipes.

Is smoked pig knuckle or leg (hock) available to you and is it commonly used?

Are other kinds beans available to you? Are any other beans commonly used in your culture? Do you, yourself, use any other kind of beans.

Where do you live? I would love to be able to buy soy beans locally. The pictures of your dishes look very tasty. I plan on making at least one this week even if I have to use pinto beans or some other type of beans and hocks.

Thanks for broadening our horizons.

When I was following a low-carb eating plan we used to eat a lot of soybeans. Now I have to limit my soy products because of the estrogen link.

Some healthfood stores carry canned soybeans, they can be found in black or white. Diamond Organics usually has dried soybeans - it's the best source for black soybeans. I'd make beans and smoked ham hocks and black bean soup with them. They do take a little longer to cook, and they don't get quite as soft.

I still love them, and have a good supply - but not supposed to eat them now.
