Rosemary White Beans


  • 2 cups dried white beans
  • 3/4 cup diced bacon
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 4 cups water
  • Ad
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper


Cover the beans with cold water and soak overnight in the refrigerator. They will double in size so use a lot of water.

Heat the bacon in a large pot over medium heat, until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Add the onions and cook 8-10 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Then add the chicken stock and water until simmering.

Drain beans of their water and add to pot. Cook on medium heat until soft, about 1 1/2 hours.

There will be just enough liquid in the pot so it is frothy, if necessary turn up the heat to reduce the liquid. Stir in the rosemary and butter, and season to taste before serving.
