Cajun Red Beans & Rice (pj-style)

Sort beans and wash. Soak overnight in cold water in large pot. Pour off water and rinse beans. Add all chopped veggies and spices and ham cubes to beans. Cover all with water and bring to boil. Turn heat low, cover pot and cook slowly for several hours until beans are tender. Stir occasionally (don't let beans stick to bottom of pot) and add water as needed to keep beans covered. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Occasionally a teaspoon of sugar is needed to round out the taste. This is for personal preference.)

When beans are tender, mash 1/2 +/- cup of them to thicken the bean broth. Serve beans hot over mounds of fluffy white rice.

Worcestershire sauce, 2- tbs. brown sugar, salt & pepper to taste. cover and cook slowly on low heat, bring to slow boil, stirring occasionally. (This will splatter during cooking.)
