swedish brown beans


i belong to a food buying club served by ozark co-operative warehouse. they often run specials on unusual (to americans) cheeses, rices, beans, etc. recently i bought a #5 sack of swedish brown beans, but when a searched recipezaar -- nothing! however i did find this recipe on soar: the searchable online archive of recipes and tried it that night. it made a delicious creamy dish - a little sweeter than most main-dish bean recipes, but very delicious. you can cut down on prep time by bringing the beans to a boil for 10 minutes, then covering. remove from heat and let sit for an hour. this takes the place of soaking overnight. make sure your beans are tender before you add salt. (salt tends to toughen the beans.) serve with a hearty bread.
