Lobio Beans for Mashed Lobio with Racha Ham Recipe

100 grams of pork fat (or butter) and 400 grams of ham. We used smoked ham from the Racha region of Georgia (Georgian: რაჭული ლორი). This gives the beans a very special flavor. Boiling the beans with ham is a tradition of people in Racha and is considered to produce the best lobio.

Racha Ham

Preparation: Soak beans in a deep cooking pot of cold water for two hours prior to cooking. When ready to cook, drain the water and add the ham, a little salt and 1.5 liters of fresh water. Cook on a medium heat until the beans are tender.
