Beanie Babies: an ode to beans

I'm spilling the beans

I'm runnin' my mouth,

I'm posting a method

famous down South

---where whiskey's

> the water <

wetting the beans,

& though they're not magic

they are good cuisine,

worth mountains!

Not foothills

---of beans just by rights,

but don't bother counting

this dish fits a tight

---budget, and waistline

since beans pack a punch!

Filling you up

at dinner or lunch,

so head down to Beantown!

and get full of beans!

of vigor and vim!

(and things in between)

since if you're not careful

when prepping this fruit,

it brings stalk-less magic

& makes you go toot!

The Results!

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: Serves 6-note: cook time doesn't include soak time

Ingredients

  • 1 lb navy beans, dried
  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 3 green bell peppers
  • 4 gala apples
  • 2 (14 oz) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shallots
  • 2-3 carrots
  • ¼ - ½ cup Jack Daniels
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1-2 TBSP. molasses
  • 6-8 garlic cloves
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper

How to Do It:

  1. The biggest trick to this recipe is noticing it's essential to begin it the day prior. So, a day before you'd like to make this, place 1 lb. dried navy beans in enough water to cover adn then some, and bring to a boil. Let boil for a few minutes, then drain water. Replace water, and bring beans to a boil again--this time, though, remove from heat, cover and let stand 12-24 hours. (at room temp)
  2. Okay. That's out of the way! Now, drain the beans, and rinse well. Set these puppies aside for now.
  3. On to the good stuff: prep your apples and carrots as shown in the diagram--a fine dice on the carrots, and the peeled apples in mouth-size chunks...Tip: I leave the peels on the carrots for added nutrition, since once they are all diced up, it's impossible to detect. Set the prepped apples & carrots aside for now.
  4. Peel and dice shallots & garlic, keeping these components separate. Set aside.
  5. Slice, seed and flatten green bell peppers onto a sheet of foil.
  6. Place under broiler until skins are pretty much black.
  7. Slice, seed and flatten red bell peppers onto a sheet of foil.
  8. Place under broiler until skins are pretty much black.
  9. Easy to peel the skins away with a sharp paring knife, and delicate touch!
  10. Dice pepper strips into large chunks, and set aside. (a very popular place in this recipe!)
  11. On to prepping the sauce. Heat veggie oil to sizzling in pan, and add apple chunks.
  12. Cover! Cook until golden brown--or burned to hell--your choice! Once they are done they go to that Twilight Zone "aside" place, as well. :)
  13. In same pan, cook shallots until translucent.
  14. Covered, naturally.
  15. Add carrots.
  16. Cover.
  17. When these have simmered for a few minutes, add garlic bits. This time the cover is NOT replaced. Just as soon as you hear this sizzle-->
  18. Add Jack Daniels! As much or as little as you like, and cook until alcohol cooked off.
  19. Add molasses...
  20. Add brown sugar. I am assuming you know enough to stir after each addition...? Mmm?
  21. Add red wine vinegar. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
  22. Add salt to suit...
  23. the same with the cayenne pepper! Okay, this "slurry" is officially done, so remove from heat, and set it aside. (I'll wait while you slip through the portal and back...;)
  24. On to the beans! In a cooking kettle, add the plain tomato sauce to the beans. Stir--der-de-der!!
  25. Now add the slurry, mixing incredibly well. :)
  26. Grab a 9 X 13 casserole dish, and pretreat with non-stick cooking spray if desired.
  27. put the beans in this, and cook for one hour at 350.
  28. Remove. Let sit for about 5 minutes. Dish it up, and enjoy the concert--er--dinner!!

Add some green veggies, and you are stylin' & profilin'!

      The pictures make'a me look good! :) When in doubt, I add a jpeg, hehe. I just know that when i looked for a recipe for beans years ago, I just couldn't figure out the soaking method to assure they wouldn't crunch. I think this pictorial/recipe makes that a no brainer. Thank you for taking time to comment; it makes me beam with cookish pride. :)

      Thanks, crafty Kid! I am hoping you get this--I never seem to respond correctly--meaning, a little "reply" box pops up after I post in THIS box...I obviously have "beans for brains" when it comes to commenting...de-de-der. :)

      The Jack Daniels does add a certain cache, doesn't it...:) It's a good add-in for BBQ sauces for just that reason! Sounds so serious and all. Have a great day!!
