3 cups dried black beans
2 medium ham hocks
1 medium bell pepper -- chopped
1 small onion -- chopped
1 whole sour orange -- =or=- tangerine
1 tablespoon vinegar *
1/2 cup oleo
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste

Preparation / Directions:

* (if you used a sweet orange or tangerine) Put your beans in a soup pot and cover with water. Boil, take off the fire and let sit until cool. Cook onions and bell peppers in 1/2 the oleo until limp. Add them and the ham hocks and orange to the cooled beans; cover charitably with water. Simmer until beans is soft (1 to 2 hours). Fish out the orange right now, before it gets tore up. With the rest of the oleo, brown the flour in a black frying pan, then stir it into the beans. Brenda says: "Make sure you got a soup, now. If you need to add some more water, do it."
