O.K., this is all tozie's fault... :twirl:she got me hungry for some of my red beans & cornbread with her tellin' 'bout her pot of great northern beans & cornbread she made.  smile3

Sooo, yesterday I soaked a big ol' pot of 'em. Last night I put a ham in the oven & the beans on to cook.
 This morning around 3:30 a.m. we had ourselves a feast & let me tell ya'll it was good!! dinner thumb

 These are called pinto beans when they are dry & red beans after they're cooked...at least here in Texas. roll And most BBQ places serve 'em, but they never put any seasoning in them. loco6 You gotta' make 'em homemade to get a good bowl of beans. drool

Here are a few pics of the preparation of my meal. happyjack And Jerry better enjoy it while he can, cause when I go back to work I won't be fixing anything so elaborate for a looong time. lol

Picking rocks out of dry beans.


Getting them ready to cook.


Chopping up the ham for the beans.


The bacon that went in them as well.




All the seasonings I put in them.


Pressure cooking them to get them soft.


Simmering the beans to thicken the juice & blend flavors.


Cutting the butter in the cornmeal.








Ahhh, done at last!


The feast!! Fit for a king...Redneck King that is... laffhrd


And here he is digging in...Mmmmmm!


My bowl of red beans & cornbread. drool smile3





I know most folks on here don't eat red beans, but this is part of our culture in Texas... droolon2

Lets see what kind of beans ya'll make a big ol pot of...what is the bean of choice where you come from? confused

 laffhrd   :fart:  <breaks into song> beans beans the musical fruit, the more ya eat the more ya toot! the more ya toot the better ya feel! so lets have beans for every meal!!  lol
sorry, i dont like ham. dont like it in my beans either. meat? i'm perfectly happy with a bowl of beans and cornbread for dinner... as a matter of fact, i had that for dinner three nights in a row.  smile3 i didnt have to worry bout customers follwing me round all day. <snicker>

 dmblaf  my cornbread 'recipe' is the little martha white packet that all ya gotta do is add milk and bake. why kill myself coming up with 'scratch' when the pre mixed stuff is just as good??  dknow
my bean recipe is simple, its in the first post in my comfort food thread.

I have ta' say I do make my cornbread from scratch...but, honestly...I do wash my hands after every scratch... oh dmblaf

 My recipe is from my Grandma and then I tweaked it up to my liking.

 Cornbread is very simple to make from scratch. Guess the hardest thing you'd have to do besides stir it would be cutting the butter into the dry ingredients. Nothing hard about it, it is one of those things you look, feel & say, "Yeah, just enough butter ta' make it moist & tasty! handshappy
