Can o'beans? Waitaminute. This is one of the famous Backwoods Chefs and you don't make scratch beans?Old friend, only God can make beans from scratch, but lots of companies boil them for you, add a little tomato sauce and call them pork 'n beans. For myself, I like Showboat brand beans, available everywhere
Say it ain't so, PawPaw. If it IS so, tell me which can(s) you open so I can have the best beans available in a can.
Dried beans are good for lots of things, and some of my recipes call for dried beans, but I'm also partial to canned beans. They're cheap, readily available, and they store forever.
