      1/4 lbs choped ham

      1/4 tsp pepper, thyme, basil, cayenne
      1 tsp paprika

      Soak beans over night.
      In a large kettle fry ham and bacon. Saute garlic, onion, cerley until tender. Add tomatoes, broth, beans, worcestershire, tobasco, and seasonings. Then put it in your quart jars and process at 10 lbs pressure for 90 min . One inch head space. When you take it out of the jars simmer for 20 minutes. I also added some water before I simmered because it looked a little thick.
