I recently received an interesting question about beans.
My great grandparents and kin moved to Spokane WA from western NC in 1888. My grandmother was born here. Every summer she made hacked-beans with salt pork and a johnny cake. She claimed this was a NC recipe. Have you ever heard of or eaten hacked beans?
P.S. I love your page.

I’ve never heard of hacked beans have you?
