Now that I have a serious quantity of beans, I thought I'd better look for a serious number of bean recipes. Baked beans seems a pretty good choice to start with so I've found a recipe which includes treacle & tomatoes & half a pound of climbing barlotti beans which are soaking overnight ready to cook tomorrow.
Of course I've always looked at beans as being a bit of padding with not a lot of taste, but vegetarians have to eat something & they're OK if you like that sort of thing, but give me a steak any day.
I do give them their place with sausages, or in a stew or to make mince go a bit further, but it's only now that I come to look at some recipes, that I have rather more enthusiasm.
By chance, I caught the end of a Jamie Oliver programme C4 this evening & - damn me - if he wasn't cooking barlotti beans too in a delicious looking dish which I must have a go at too.
Wonder if I've grown enough beans...?
