Last of the Beans
The last of the season have been the very biggest of the year, look at those fatties in the foreground! I'll add these to the 2 gallons I already have shelled in the freezer. I've seen similar beans in catalogues and markets also called Tongue of Fire or horticultural beans. They are easy to shell and excellent in soups, I especially like to put them in my minestrone and they are also lovely just simmered up with some onion, garlic and herbs, a little pork product never hurts either, they are very meaty and delicious. A good brown pone of buttermilk skillet cornbread is the ticket for dipping into the beany broth.
