1 onion
1 stalk celery

These ingredients are able to feed:  3persons


In a clay pot put the beans (soak all the night before), add water up to a level well above the one of the beans, add the onion, celery, rosemary and olive oil and put the clay pot closed with its lid on the embers of the fireplace.
Always keep handy boiling water ready to use if you dry out the water in the pot with the beans. The cooking "in regolatura" consists in being able to adjust when removing the pot from the embers and then finishing to cook always on the fireplace near the embers, therefore, based on the size of the pot and the amount there will be different times.
It is important to remove the pot when the beans are almost cooked but not yet perfectly cooked, at this point the pot is removed from the embers and left near the fireplace so that the cooking slowly finishes.
