My first failure, sorta…
Yellow Eye Bean did
not deserve that!
I put the beans in water to soak and forgot them and
they soaked a LONG time,
too long. I also put the wrong liquids in the pot (I was
saving to put over chicken) and ended up with too
much pot liquor. It didn’t
have time to really mellow and cook cuz the beans were DONE in a blink!
A lesson for me in how fresh beans can easily cook fast if soaked!
The beans tasted okay once I drained them of a lot of their liquid…
I saved the green chili liquid and froze some in an ice cube tray to pop into rice,
and will use some of the funny liquid over roasted chicken leftovers.
We paired the beans with corn and salsa and dipped corn chips
into the mess and it was actually a good dinner.
These are gorgeous beans!
Of course, as they cook they loose their vibrant colors.
I am falling in love with a stream of beans on a lovely sketch page.
