1 pint dried navy beans cold water 1/2 pound salt pork 1 onion 4 stalks celery 1 tablespoon flour 2 tablespoons water salt pepper
Wash and soak the beans overnight in 2 quarts of cold water. The next morning add 2 more quarts of water, the salt pork, onion, and celery, and cook until the beans are soft. Remove the salt pork, cut into small pieces, press the beans through a sieve, and save all the liquid. Combine all these ingredients, reheat, and add the flour and water, which have been well mixed. Add the salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes. Serve with a slice of lemon on top of each portion.
