2 tsp celentro
4 cups chicken stock

salt and pepper to taste

put black beans and water in large pot. cover and boil two minutes. Turn off heat and let stand 1 hour.

remove the lid and add the rest of the ingredients, except the vinegar, salt and pepper. the beans,must be covered may have to add a bit more water. cover and simmer until the beans are tender, about 2 hours. take out the ham and digared bones. Return the meat to the pot. add the vinegar, salt and pepper. simmer fro 5 mins.

I LOVE Black Bean Soup, but instead of the ham I cook it along with a smoked turkey thigh. And I also add a goodly dollop of dry sherry to it & garnish it with another goodly dollop of sour cream & finely chopped sweet onion.
