Red Beans or Bust - photos
I'm not sure I ever posted this comedy of errors. It eventually came out OK, but not really from anything I did to get it there.

This is from a few weeks back and documents problems I had with red beans and a series of mistakes that eventually came out OK.

I should have started with kidney beans and I didn't:

Here is the rest - Not sure why that grater is there because I never used it and you guys have all seen a grater:

And I decided to use the crock pot (wish I had soaked my beans but I decided to do them on a spur of the moment brain fart and didn't)

I had some smoked ham but little else. Sausage or other pork would have been nicer.

In it goes and off I go somewhere else.

Here they are a lot later - I think I only set the heat to low, because we were a long way from where I wanted to be this far into the cooking.

With little to lose, I decided to put them in the old bean pot and stick that in the oven while we went out to Sonic for a Burger and Tots. Don't say I don't treat the wife (MHNBPF) like a princess.

A few hours in the oven sealed in the bean pot does wonders as does some more seasoning.

A ready to eat photo you have already seen - I used it in my cornbread post.

Happy those red beans are gone from the pantry.

I'll do better next time.

So, did I already post this?
