Well, here we go again. Somehow, pictures don't seem to upload and
face the correct direction. We tried 5 different kinds of beans:
S&W, Natural Directions organic, Great Value, Bush's and Western
Prices: (all were the same size can)
Western Family .79
Natural Directions Organic 1.18
Great Value .66
Family beans are a little darker, as are Natural Directions. The
Western Family beans had spots on the beans. They didn't look like very
good quality beans. The S&W beans were smaller than all the
others. Bush's beans had less liquid and were softer than the other
As for taste, the worst ones were the Western
Family and the Natural Directions organic. I must say I was expecting
the organic beans to be the best and was surprised that they weren't.
The best tasting were the S&W and the Bush's. Great Value was about
in the middle.
If you are wondering what I am going to do with all these beans, I am making the best white chili I have ever found found here: http://www.melskitchencafe.com/2008/09/creamy-white-chili.htmlI. With the rest, I am going to experiment with in recipes like hamburger buns found here: http://dealstomeals.blogspot.com/2011/03/homemade-hamburger-buns-with-beans.html.
Do you have any good white bean recipes? Please share them if you do!
