Thank you for all your input. I also appreciate the information on
mirepoix! I thought it was a pronounced and spelled miraquoix or
miraquoix. Good to know. I am somewhat Spanish word oriented and should
have realized it was a French term and spelling.
I tasted about a 1/2 cup of beans that I microwaved for 8 minutes. I
thought I was on some kind of L.S.D. trip...didn't get sick but didn't
feel too good to me. So out they went...down the disposal. Now to throw
out the other 4 cans in the larder and replace on a needed basis rather
than ahead of time.
Thanks again to all.
P.S. I'll post the recipe separately in order to keep it from being
"tarnished" with this cook's poor choice of old stored canned tomato
puree. Don't do it! Buy fresh, rotate your larder stock, or buy on a as
needed basis. I have this thing about not able to plan. Ah well.
