We've just gotten a delivery of a whole pig from our local farm, and I'm confused about how to cook/prepare the smoked hams. Are they considered cooked after they've been smoked? Or do I proceed as if they were fresh? Thanks!
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.
Sometimes, it’s best to add no liquid to the cooker. Here, we toss onion wedges, baby potatoes, and large carrot chunks with oil and harissa. We then arrange seared chicken thighs on top, and cook the mixture with no liquid added.
