This past weekend we ended up going on a spur of the moment camping trip where I was in charge of a pot of black beans for 12 adults and 6 kids. This, obviously, sounds like the textbook example of when you'd want to use dried beans over canned (I know they're always better, but you know what I mean....). However, I couldn't because we decided to go at the last minute and I just didn't have enough time for them to cook. It killed me to open 6 cans of beans!
The point is, I was thinking, "Dang, I wish I had a pressure cooker right now!"
But other than cooking dried beans quickly, when would I use it? Is it worth it?
I do have the storage for one, so that's not an issue.
You deserve a cookie.
