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?
