1 pound cannellini beans -- dried
2 medium celery ribs -- finely chopped
1 medium yellow onion -- finely chopped
2 medium garlic cloves -- finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 quarts water

Rinse the beans in a colander and pick out any stones, debris, or funky-looking beans. Place the beans in a large bowl and add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Let soak for 8-12 hours.

Bring to a boil, cover reduce heat and simmer until the beans are tender but not mushy, about 1 hour. Drain well, season with salt. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
