Soak 2 pounds white beans overnight. Then drain, rinse, and cover again with 16 cups water. Begin bringing to a boil.

Cut one pound of bacon into chunks. Fry in a medium saucepan until done.

To the pot of beans, add:
the fried bacon
2 Tbsp chicken broth powder
1 large onion, finely minced
10 cloves of garlic, finely minced
8 stalks of celery with leaves
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp dried rosemary, minced
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper

Bring to a boil, then simmer for 2-3 hours, until beans are soft. Adjust the seasonings to your taste.
