Today's menu: New Orleans White Beans with Rice
Claire, Husband thanks you for inspiring me! White beans (great northerns) slow cooked with ham hocks, onion, garlic, celery and cayenne.YUM!!!

I'm bypassing the highly flavorful but artery clogging soul food method of thickening with lard by using the ham hocks, wee bit of fat from them plus a bit of gelatin action from the bones of the hocks is the next best thing.
