what's the diff between dried beans and which are good for what?

miss louella | Nov 15, 2006 01:31 AM

Hey all, is there any rule of thumb for dried beans? xxx beans are good for Mexican food, yyy beans are good for purees, zzz beans are good when you're in a hurry, whatever?

Or is there a difference depending on the size? Like the smallest ones are good for aaa and the biggest ones are good for bbb?

I've found dried favas (new to me), what would make them shine?

I'm a gal who likes a side-by-side taste comparison and so far I haven't done a bean-off. Appreciate any and all tips!
