First of all, you have to boil the kidney beans, cannellini beans, and lima beans to remove their toxicity (Phytohaemagglutinin). The boiling turns other beans, like navy beans, to mush. And the split peas and lentils, forget it - they will have dissolved long before the rest of the beans have cooked, which is okay because they act as a thickener.

Having said that, I think it tastes great even if half the beans are overcooked.


Have you tried making it in the crockpot? I buy the 15 bean mix, and cook them that way, after a long soak, & add hamhock, onions, carrots & garlic. It always turns out delicious.

I never said it wasn't delicious. I was commenting on the cooking requirements for each of the varieties of beans/peas.

BTW - A crock pot won't get rid of the Phytohaemagglutinin in the kidney beans and lima beans, but I suppose there aren't many in the 15-bean mix.

The colder it gets, the better all those foods that are too dense and hot to eat during the summer. Pasta comes immediately to mind, and mashed potatoes. And it's a great time for cooking aromas. My son is making some gingerbread cookies for tonight's dessert - I love the smell of them cooking at least as much as I enjoy eating them.

Oh...

And imperial stout...

The temp is going to be in the teens when we go out with friends to their club tonight. I think I'm going to have the meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

I recently made a chili with extra lean grass fed beef, tweaked my usual recipe by adding both Hungarian sweet paprika and smoked Spanish paprika in addition to the usual chili powder and celery flakes and the result was so tasty we ended up finishing the whole batch in one sitting. I sprinkled crumbles of blue cheese on top (don't know what came over me) and must say the result was fantastic.
I'm on a smoked Spanish paprika kick lately. It's amazing on egg dishes.
