2cup dried navy beans

1 onion diced
1/2 stalk celery diced
1/2 tsp oregano
1 bay leaf
1 large carrot, pared and diced large
salt and pepper to taste
Place the beans in large bowl and cover with hot water, soak for 2 hours
Then place salt pork in large saucepan over medium heat. Cook it for 3 minutes. Then you add onions and celery, cook 4 to 5 minutes over low heat.
After 2 hours, Drain beans and add to onion in saucepan. Add seasonings to taste
Put enough cold water to cover beans and let it boil. Cook it for 1 and 1/2 hours, partly covered , medium heat. Stir occasionally.
Then add diced carrots and taste to correct seasoning. Continue cook for another 30 to 45 minutes and keep stirring occasionally.
