What's in the Pot? - SRS Meeting November 5, 2009

This month we are talking all about legumes (beans & lentils). Different types of beans, the many uses for beans and how to cook beans are some of the things we discussed!

Buy it: Beans are very cheap to buy and can be bought either at the LDS Cannery or at your local grocery store.

Store it: Beans can be stored in almost any airtight container. I still have my beans from the Cannery in their #10 cans, but also love the PETE Bottles. Here is the original post on Storage Containers.

Use it: Besides making awesome soups, Did you know that you can use bean flour to replace some of your wheat flour? Did you know you can use beans to replace margarine? Click here to find out more.
