Our job for the Joy VFD dinners is cooking beans. Behm has the best beans around! They are just basic beans, no added extras, but they are good!
I have the job of sorting 40 pounds of beans. Soak them overnight, drain, rinse, & add to cooker. Behm browns bacon ends & pieces in the cooker first. Fill with water & cook for about 4 hours.
I have definitely learned how to sort beans. When I first cooked beans, many years ago, I sorted 1 pound. There weren't enough beans to cook after sorting. Any that didn't look exactly like the others were throw aways. I called Mama & asked her what I was doing wrong. She explained the fine art of sorting beans. Sort the rocks out!!
