I'm making stock from the turkey carcass from Christmas. Once I'm done with the carcass, can I reduce the stock by keeping it on the burner for a couple of hours so as to take up less room in the freezer?
This Creole classic was actually designed for the dried kidney bean—an inexpensive staple that could simmer away while Monday’s wash gets done, with a hunk of pork or sausage from Sunday night’s supper.
Cooked dried black beans provide the wow factor in this simple dip; you could serve the blended beans alone and guests would swoon over the rich, full-bodied flavor. Use leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or burritos, or stir into a bean soup.
