Title: Ham and beans
Post by: delrod on April 14, 2021, 07:01:33 PM
Kind of a poll. Maybe a social experiment of sorts
1 plate or bowl?  I'm a plate guy
2 white or brown? White for me
3 fork or spoon. Fork for me
4 onion or no. Onion for me
Any other answers to questions I haven't asked

Bowl (bowel?), brown, spoon, onion.

Don't think I've had this since I was in college. Now I have a craving...

Bowl or plate, doesn’t matter. Brown preferred, but white ok. Fork.  Onion for me.

Need some kind of hot sauce.  Or peppers.

1 bowl
2 red preferred, made on Monday.  If not red, it's like riding your other bike instead of your ready & waiting Guzzi....
3 fork
4 onion (and with red beans and rice- mixed bell peppers, garlic, celery all browned in bacon grease with fresh stock preferably with a shaggy hambone knuckle to cook for hours, plus both ham & chicken with some sausage but NOT kielbasa with fake smoke... include some nice crusty bread and hot sauce)

Wow, got some new old cast iron pots & pans today.  Now I can't wait until Monday to make some red beans and rice.

Small bowl to separate beans from other foods.  Brown, fork, onion is fine. Brown bread for extra credit points.

What is this "Ham and Beans" you talk of?

Is it a traditional recipe of the USA I need to hunt down?

Perazzimx14 kindly PM'd me a recipe so I have an idea what the key ingredients are, but I have no idea what great northern beans might be and need a smoked ham hock.

Still my bike rides are focused around finding specialist small suppliers of quality food either to eat in, take away or ingredients

Latest discovery is G H Porter in Newark on Trent who do triple smoked bacon - so might be a source of the ham hock

They also do a belting pork pie right up there with those from Red Hill Farm one of our other food outlets

Thanks again

I agree with the last twenty or so posts. In other words, there is no wrong way to eat ham and beans. Only good and gooder.
80 degrees in Seattle, so maybe a cold pasta salad instead.

Real deal-  Red Beans and Rice on Monday with a loaf of fresh bread


Soaked bag of red beans.  Two small bags of frozen fresh stock- 1 ham, 1 chicken.  One shaggy hambone and some ham skin. Two chicken drumsticks. One leftover Italian sausage. A piece of leftover ham.  Chopped red & green bell peppers, celery, onion and garlic, browned in bacon grease.


(https://i.ibb.co/YXBmWTN/image.jpg) (https://ibb.co/YXBmWTN)


Loaf of fresh bread, made up and proofing.  Drained beans in pot with vegetables and meats to cook.


(https://i.ibb.co/vdHygP3/image.jpg) (https://ibb.co/vdHygP3)


Bread out of oven, crackling and singing away like it should.  Meat removed, rough cut and reserved while bones et al are left to simmer in pot for a few more hours.


(https://i.ibb.co/cTYxn4Y/image.jpg) (https://ibb.co/cTYxn4Y)


Meat is returned to pot to soften and finish when about 75% of the liquid is gone from beans.  Rice is cooked.  Time to eat.


(https://i.ibb.co/PZGZfVh/image.jpg) (https://ibb.co/PZGZfVh)


When I'm dying in the hospital bed, this is the last meal I want running through my IV. 

Dinner isn't for a couple of hours or so.  If anyone wants to make a road trip in this exquisite spring weather, we would be glad to have you ride in for supper...

Never would have guessed such bourgeois fare would have a fan base here. Us proletariats had to make do with hot dogs and beans.  :food: It also checked off the entertainment box (while the B&W TV was warming up) by attempting to coat each hot dog chunk with brown mustard whilst avoiding getting bean juice on the knife and cross-contaminating the mustard jar.
