White Beans

I love colorful foods so I was hesitate to buy these white beans at the bulk bins today. I needed beans, but these guys weren’t jumping out at me. IMG 2259 thumb White Beans

Hmmmm. I was on the fence the whole way through.IMG 2260 thumb White Beans

But, I was able to just walk away from them since I cooked them in the crockpot instead of on the stove.IMG 2262 thumb White Beans

Three and a half hours on high later – they were splitting apart. That’s not a good thing, but I didn’t have high expectations for these beans.IMG 2263 thumb White Beans

    I’ve never cooked plain beans in the slow cooker but want to try because they’re so much cheaper than canned beans! I bet it would be super convenient to make a big batch of them to have for soups, salads, etc. throughout the week.

    Confession: Cooking uncooked beans scares me! Not sure why, but the can always seems so much more appealing. Is there a significant difference in taste?

      No, I don’t think there is a significant difference in taste. Theoretically there is a significant difference in cost, but that doesn’t include the cost of your time to make them :)

      I would say closer to a pinto bean. They don’t have a real powerful flavor or texture.
      Ice cream always > chocolate chip cookies, but chocolate chip cookies > than everything else :)

    I love white beans! I have used them plently of times in my salads before or in a crockpot type of dish (white beans, chicken, and some type of veggie).
