I got my cranberry sauce, cranberry relish, and pumpkin pies made. I stuck a new ingredient in the relish, and it made a huge difference. I think it’s new, although knowing me, I may have done the same thing last year.
I have two pones of cornbread mashed up in a pot with sage, salt, pepper, fried onions, too much butter, and some other stuff. It’s so good I could eat it right now, cold and wet though it is.
I decided to use some of my precious shucky beans. I grew these a few years back and dried them myself.
These will be incredible. If you’ve never had them, go get some fresh green beans, remove the strings, dry them strung on threads, and cook them in a few months. These will soak overnight, and then tomorrow I’ll toss the water, replace it, add salt pork, and simmer them.
What a joy it is to have shucky beans on hand! I probably have the only shucky beans within 800 miles.
I thought Thanksgiving would be boring, but it’s starting to look like it will be a fantastic meal.Stumble it! Save This Page
