Favorite Ingredients Friday

I found this recipe this week on a cooking board I follow. I love red beans and rice. I don't make it often enough because I don't have my beloved Camellia beans up here. They make the creamiest red beans. Anyway, this recipe is very similar to what I do, but with measurements, plus it's a crock pot version. It's given me a taste for red beans, so I think I'll try this recipe soon.

Red Beans - Crock Pot Style

1 16-ounce bag (dry) kidney beans
1 ham bone OR bone-in ham hock
1 large red or green bell pepper, chopped
1 large Vidalia onion, chopped
3 stalks celery w/ leaves, chopped
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
1 TBS Frank's hot sauce
2 bay leaves
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon sage
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1 cup red wine (or beef broth)
water to cover all ingredients
1 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper

Garnish: 3 TBS each of chopped fresh parsley and green Spring onions

Place all ingredients (except garnish) into crock pot stir well and cook on low, covered for 8-10 hours. Check liquid level, adding water if needed to cover the beans. If there is too much liquid, turn the heat on high and leave the pot uncovered for a few minutes.

Reduce heat for several more hours or until ready to serve. Beans should be very tender. Remove bones and bay leaves; add garnish before serving. Serve over rice. Freezes well, too!

Update on last week's recipe, Better Than Almost Anything Cake. I made it again. This time I used hot fudge instead of caramel topping and whipped cream instead of whipped cream cheese frosting. It is even better!

I must confess, I haven't made red beans over rice before but I'm going to try it with your recipe! I especially love that it's a crockpot recipe.

And I'm going to try your cake with your suggested modifications! Yummy!

Thanks so much for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange. I do appreciate it.
