1. Sauté onions and garlic in oil for about 5 minutes, until onions begin to soften. Add ginger, thyme and allspice, and sauté, stirring often to prevent sticking, until onions are very soft, for about 5 minutes. 2. Stir in beans and orange juice, and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens slightly. Use heat diffuser or double boiler, if necessary, to prevent scorching. Mash a few beans with back of spoon for thicker consistency. Add salt and pepper, and serve with salsa.
2. Let salsa sit for 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend before topping beans.
