    Some of these are Cranberry beans from last years garden

    I soak these overnight in the fridge-way my family does these type of beans.Then added some ham chunks-I save the bone for soups- and cooked till beans are soft

    Cooked-i reserve the bean water to add at end

    I reduce 2 quarts of my canned tomatoes with sauteed garlic,shallots etc.

    Gently smoked this storebought[​IMG] Andouille with pecan

    Grabbed some fresh peppers from garden for some crunch and added reserved bean water.It is always excellent.The dutch oven will be working overtime in bed tonite...

    Finally found some spare ribs for 1.89 pound(no solution) and whats left is a side for that smoke this week....

    Good Grief-o-rama! WOW, that's some good looking beans there ALX. Nothing better than "real" beans you got to soak, and from your garden too... No worries on the store-bought Andouille, it's pretty good considereing we're a looong way from Cajun country.

    Excellent meal and thanks for sharing it! [​IMG]

    Oh great big WOW for the beans they look abosoluty out of this world. It would be nice to have fresh andouille sausage but then it would also be nice to have fresh beans like that alx. Everything always taste better if it's from fresh ingredents. [​IMG]that is definetly one fine dinner there.
