  White beans 1 Pound
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Sweet paprika 2 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme leaves 2 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper white 1 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano leaves 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chopped onions 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Chopped green bell peppers 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Chopped celery 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Defatted chicken stock 4 1⁄2 Cup (72 tbs)
  Peeled chopped tomatoes/Two 14 1/2-ounce cans chopped tomatoes 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Minced fresh garlic 2 Teaspoon
  Apple juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Day 1: Add enough water to the beans to cover them by 3 or 4 inches, and soak overnight in the refrigerator.
As the beans absorb the water, they will more than double in volume.
Day 2: Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
Drain the beans and set aside.
Preheat a heavy 5-quart pot, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350°, about 4 minutes.
Add 2 cups of the onions, 1 cup bell peppers, the celery, and 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mix.
Stir and cook until the vegetables start to turn brown, about 5 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup of the stock, scrape the bottom of the pot to clear it of all the browned bits, and cook until the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes.
Add the remaining onions, stir and scrape the bottom of the pot, and cook 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and the remaining seasoning mix and bell peppers.
Clear the bottom of the pot and cook 5 minutes.
Add the drained beans, 3 cups of stock, and the garlic, and cook 10 to 12 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium and cook 50 minutes.
Stir in the remaining 1 cup of stock and the apple juice, and cook until the beans are tender, and the liquid is thick and starts to look creamy, about 50 minutes more.
