Gonna make some beans because I can and am bored. Enjoy!
A cup each of pinto and black should be good I think. Plenty to last me!
Let's start these beanies on low and I'll do some veggie prep. Added a little over 3 cups of water.
Healthy pile of onion. Gonna do em up nice with some garlic, salt, pepper and sunflower oil!
I would normally use red onion but all I have is white. Gonna be downgrading to a 12" wok soon too.
Been fine so far.
Onions are looking beautiful! And into the pot they go!
Adding some fresh ground cumin and ground crushed red pepper flakes as well as some honey.
Setting to high till it begins to bubble then dropping down to low.
I did indeed sort pre rinse.
This is partly true. Decided to peruse the net for "poisonous beans" and apparently it's mainly kidney and pinto beans that do have toxins that can be severely harmful. Boiling is indeed required to remove this toxin but my crock boils just fine when I cook beans so I'm not worried. Have also used this method several other times to no negative effects so I feel pretty safe. Still researching though to be more sure of information.
Seems reasonable. I mainly use Pinto, and black in my slow cooker, so not sweating it. The only dish I use use Kidney in is chili (Fuck you, Texas). And I use canned for that.
Also did an egg bake which apparently I cooked at too high a temp and my glassware cracked. Fuck me.
No I put it in here. I thought it would be ok as long as I didn't go too hot. Definitely cooked too fast from the bottom though....First time trying to use the Dutch oven too
Why is that a concern? Baking food in the oven costs fractions of a cent.
You can use a dutch oven on a range top, but you certainly can't put a glass bowl on one. You should have just put the egg "bake" directly into the dutch oven. Why the glass at all?
3) You're making an egg bake. Why not....you know...BAKE IT?
I know it's cheap but long story short my winters next year will be heated with a pot belly stove and I wanted to see how the oven would theoretically work on top of the stove. This would save me much energy. (My stove next year will be propane not electric)
I didn't want to put the egg straight in the oven because on the stove top it would cook faster from the bottom. Just like it did anyway sadly.
3) I was trying to bake it...just in a dutch oven
They are just finishing now. Added more honey and salt and pepper btw. Flavor is pretty solid now. Little bit of back of mouth/throat spice with a cumin - ey front flavor that is married nicely with the beans and honey. Just trying to let some water cook out now. I should have used a little less initially.
