How to prepare:
Bring the beans (with fluid) and water in a large pan to a boil.
Fry the chopped turnip celery, thinly sliced leek and chopped onions in some butter translucent in another pan. Add the onion mixture and tomato paste to the beans. Cook for an hour till the beans are mushed.
Mash the beans for a coarse soup, or rub the soup through a strainer in another pan for a smooth soup. Add salt and pepper (or broth cubes) at flavour and simmer for some more minutes.
Fry the diced pork. Remove the soup from the heat and add elderberry wine or red wine at flavour. Serve and present the pork separate, so everybody can add as/if desired.
Tip: If you want to use dried beans, take 2-2,5 liter water and 500 gr dried brown (pinto) beans. Soak 24 hours in the water. Bring to a boil with the soak-water and simmer 2 hours. Then follow recipe.
