A ham hock, piece of fat back, pigs ears, pigs feet (take out before serving if it is gross to you) make great seasoning. I like them with a bit of salt, but I let each add his own salt. The simplest seasoning of all----- raw bacon! smoked, peppered, low sodium, whatever you think will taste good. I like the taste it adds, and the way it cooks up.

not til they are nearly done! Salt toughens them if added at start. And be sure to use bottled water or distilled water to start them, then if needing to add more water before they are done, use either bottled or distilled and bring to boil before adding, Pintos discolor as in darken if cold water is added in middle of cooking. Other beans I don't cook often enough to know, but when cooking navy I do them the same as Pintos. I do not pre soak and drain!! I do not believe there are toxins in beans! Add a bit of ginger to the beans just about an hour before serving with the salt, bacon, diced onion and other stuff people add to beans!
