I had a couple of college roommates who were excellent cooks. One of them made a wonderful thick chicken and noodle gravy that she always served over mashed potatoes. I had that idea in mind when I set to work on this recipe. I love the flavor the bacon and rosemary add –total comfort food! –Mellyn Continue reading
–From Jeanie R.
These rich black beans have just a few ingredients, but the result is flavorful and delicious! Jeanie said she normally uses 4-5 slices of bacon to flavor her beans, but felt that real bacon bits or even jerky would be an acceptable shelf-stable substitute. I also found that Yoder’s, an Amish company based in Ohio, sells canned pork chunks containing just pork, salt and water. Their website boasts a 10-year shelf life! Definitely something to look into! –Mellyn
