Garlic soup


Soak the beans overnight in water. Place in a pan with the water, backbones, lard and salt, and bring to the boil. Simmer for one and a half hours then add the potatoes and continue cooking. Cook the turnip tops in water in a separate pan to remove any acidity. When they come to the boil, remove and add to the pan of beans. Season with salt to taste and continue cooking over a gentle flame until the potatoes are almost falling apart.
