Guilty as charged. For whatever you want to charge me with. I'm in the midst of a Turkey Chile Verde Soup that I would really like to include some very creamy out-of-the-ordinary beans. My order from Rancho Gordo is pending my new credit card arrival (theft issues). My pantry recesses just yielded EIGHT year old cranberry beans (bob's red mill) and Tongues of Fire. Yes, I know- "try them;what do you have to lose" is also my usual mantra. But then again, maybe some of you have actually tried this and could tell me how yours fared. Plse tell me! And remember, it's just Life-- no shame allowed! Thx very much.
