Beans again

Roberto | Nov 18, 2006 07:39 AM

What ever happened to the bean string that was started a few days ago? I did a bean search on the home cooking site and got 2100 hits so that wasn't much help.

The question was: Which beans to use for what?

I tried to keep an eye on it but it just went away.

I went shopping yesterday and wrote this down. Beans for about $2.90 a pound dry. Red Lentels, Lupin, Fava, Cranberry, Canellini, Flagolets, Green Lentels and Turtle Beans.

Beans for about $1.09 a pound dry. Black, Pink, Great Notrhern, Pinto, Small White and Red Kidney.

All were packaged in two pound bags. This leads me to believe that a comprehensive tasting would be pretty expensive. Not to talk about how many little pots it would take!

What does a fella do?


p.s. This wasn't all the beans they had by far. Mucho mas...
