Makes a wonderful rich tasting, rich in history, dark bean and ham-hock casserole.
As Boy Scouts, we went on many a week-end camping trip. Parents would drop us off about five miles from where we were to camp. They would take the cars with the heavy camp gear to the camp site. We back-packed our personal gear the five mile to camp. One of the items we usually sent along with the car was Dutch oven full of Bean Hole Beans ready to go into the fire pit. As soon as we got to camp, we would build the fire pit and put the Dutch oven into the ground. The next day we had a wonderful meal waiting. Personally, there is a lot more to the history of the Bean Hole Beans but that is for another night.
