I have certain routines when it comes to food shopping. There is the work related sort which has me in the supermarkets at least a couple of times a week (no real hardship, a neighbour often comes with me & I natter with the check out staff, most of whom I’ve known since I was pregnant with my 13 yr old), the visits to my lovely butcher and the international grocers up and down the Uxbridge Road which are invaluable for their variety and for the fact that in these post Brexit days, they are never low on stock unlike the supermarkets…
Sounds lovely! My local farmers market and butchers are great. We are so fortunate to enjoy the great food & suppliers, even in the hinterland of the fens
The Lamon borlotti beans we started have just exploded from their pots - maybe in anticipation of another great recipe to try?
I just made the beans and sausages from your book (substituted Jacobs Cattle beans) and we got two good size meals for a couple of voracious eaters.
Lovely recipe - I look forward to trying it
I made this for dinner tonight. The dish is not a looker but the flavours are so good. I substituted preserved lemons chopped in the courgettes and pinto beans for the borlotti. I did not use a pc for the courgettes but fried them until go,den with the garlic then added the courgette and chopped preserved lemon. So good!
This sounds good. Could I possibly substitute pinto beans for the borlotti? No chance of fresh borlotti in deepest Worcestershire (as far as I know) and no dried in the pantry.
Another lovely post - makes me want to go to a food market and to cook beans!
A quick question. I have cooked 500g dried beans. You suggest freezing in 250g portions. Should I drain and freeze in bags or add a small amount of the cooking water?
Fascinating, and sorry about your ginger rosemary!
I love your routine. I do miss Ealing.
