  • 1. Part

    First, to boil the beans: we choose the quality of the beans (we choose the type of large bean, the color of blond), then we come in a pot and put the beans and water in it and put them on the fire and after boiling the beans, we reduce the fire under the beans and add sodium carbonate, (and add carbonate slowly because before), (sodium carbonate until it reacts nicely, it looks acidic)), and then we bring sliced ​​lemons and put them on top of the beans (you keep the color of the beans and grow by letting the sodium carbonate react more so that the beans are leveled faster and what  The color of the bean water becomes black)

    We leave the fire on them quiet and we cover them and leave them until they are cooked ((may they take 15-30 minutes depending on the type of beans), (there are a lot of important things.  It must be flat on the other, but the plant must have a small penny in it. Why?
      Because the plant does not eat its peel)).
