I’ve been sick this week and haven’t had time to put together a great recipe post. So I have this little nugget I’ve been holding on to for just such a time as this:
How NOT To Make Beans.
This is one of the more visually delightful kitchen tragedies in my recent history.
1. Pour lots of water over the beans you intend to soak.
2. Dump in a ton (as opposed to a reasonable teaspoon or two) of baking soda, to release some of the gasses from the beans. Do this to excess, please, or this disaster won’t smell right.
3. Turn the heat up very high. Whoops.
4. Forget the beans exist and go on with life. Whoops again.
Learn from my mistakes, people.
Keep an eye on the stove or it will look like this:
Happy cooking. Embrace the accidents. 🙂
