Drain beans, rinse and add to casserole, with enough water to cover them.  Bring to boil and skim.  Add remaining ingredients, cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 6 hours, stirring occasionally and adding a little water, if necessary, to prevent burning.  Serve with sauerkraut, whole grain or corn bread and turkey, lamb or vegetarian sausage.  Note : if desired add 1/4 pound naturally smoked bacon.
