Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

BBQ White Beans

I had peppers to use and didn't want to super heat my kitchen, so I made beans.  Because this recipe has beans and ham, it can be served as a stand alone dish, or it can be used as a side. 

  1 Cup Sweet Pepper, Chopped                                               2 Tbl Yellow Mustard
  8 Ounce Ham, Diced                                                             2 Tbl Cider Vinegar
  1 Tbl Vegetable Oil                                                               1.5 Tbl Light Molasses
  1/4 Cup Onion, Minced                                                          1 Tbl Worcestershire
  3 Clove Garlic, Minced                                                          1 Tbl Crushed Red Pepper
  30 Ounce Cannellini Beans                                                    

In a 2 quart saucepan, cook ham in hot oil over medium-high heat until browned.  Add onion and garlic to skillet and cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until tender.  Remove from heat, Add beans, chopped sweet pepper, mustard, vinegar, molasses,  Worcestershire sauce, and crushed red pepper - cover and refrigerate overnight (up to 24 hours).

Stir 2 Tbsp. water into bean mixture. Reheat over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until heated through.
