Musical Fruit

Stewed cellini beans

Rancho Gordo cellini beans
onion, diced
celery, diced
carrot, peeled and diced
bacon
bacon drippings
water

Make a basic mirepoix: 1 part celery, 1 part carrot to 2 parts onion and saute with bacon and bacon drippings or until vegetables are softened, about 7-8 minutes. Add 1 T. unsalted butter if you like. Add beans and enough water to cover. If you pre-soak the beans, they will cook more quickly than if not.

Bring to a boil and simmer for five minutes. Lower heat to the lowest possible setting and cover. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the beans are tender. If the liquid reduces, add more water.

Check seasoning, garnish with chopped herbs and serve immediately. In the pic above, I added a splash of garlic vinegar.

  2. “Beans, beans, the musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you toot. The more you toot, the better you’ll feel. Eat beans with every meal.” My dad would joking recite this if my mom served beans for dinner. And my mother was never amused. LOL
