I’ve busted out the crock pot again! Well its just so damn convenient why wouldn’t I? I mean you turn it on, chuck in whatever’s going to withstand being slow cooked for the next 4-6 hours and at the end of it, arm yourself with a spoon! That leaves plenty of time to run amok in the wilderness (um that’s what I call the front lawn), go snowboarding AND return in one piece, take a long lazy afternoon walk, or just contemplate it…. still counts? Ahhhh the possibilities are endless, it’s a bit like what can go into the crock pot, and since I went a bit mental at the Freshtown last week and bought home a multitude of dried beans, partly because I was thinking of attractive vintage jar collection I have going in the pantry, rather than being really really really into beans. That said….
1 pd white beans (navy, great northern etc)
2 onions chopped
1/4 c molasses (original)
1/4 c brown sugar
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Gulden’s Spicy Brown mustard, 2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cups water
Quick soak beans, just follow directions on packet. Rinse add everything to pot, give big stir. Cook 6 hours. Eat. Open some windows…..
If you wanted to add 8 strips bacon cut up and added to the pot, you’re quite welcome to. It would be a bit mean if I did it but you go right on ahead with your badass meat eatin self.
