Baked beans on loam ( South Mimms, Herts )
c. 2011 Michael St. Mark
Out for a weekday amble, we pass a 3-acre field recently torched by some
On closer inspection the former crop is discovered to be Field Beans and..
a creative spark of sorts was struck
A field of dreams (or burnt baked beans)
where are the wood chips?
Sticking out the top of the crop, can you see them?
A neat little snapped-off pile alongside the black pods, arranged on a slate plate and washed down with scoops from a nearby pool of standing water – now that’s nature’s finest yum.
mmmmmm baked beans and chips….lovely!
Do you mean to say you actually tried the baked hard ones too? rather you than me!
I somehow can’t visualise those blackened stumps on 2 slices of toast and swimming in tomato sauce—-i must be losing my creative thinking :-))))
Conditioned since childhood with a daily diet of baked beans commercials, as many of us probably are, a naive part of me expected the blackened pods to contain some soft succulent fare – only to find myself biting on tooth-snappingly hard beads.
Goes to show TV ads really can (npi) succeed in their devious underhand mission,
Baked Baked beans, now there’s a DadAa artwork to try.
(Would advise to puncture the tops of the pile of cans before setting fire.)
Send your pic/vid for upload as soon as.
Meantime easy on the holiday Pinot Grigio 😉
Yer see, I knew it. Tis a pity. I’m partial to broad beans but those Heinz variety are shite. Pity you never had a picture of tins of them up in flames.
I think I know where that is! I bet they were broad beans – they were, tell me they were!
Broad beans, Field beans, yes I think they were.
( “Vicia faba, the Broad Bean, Fava Bean, Field Bean, Bell Bean or Tic Bean, is a species of bean (Fabaceae) native to north Africa and southwest Asia, and extensively cultivated elsewhere” – Wiki)
The beans (green) I sampled that escaped the inferno were quite ripe and tasty, the baked ones hard as rock – Lord knows how Heinz sell so many tins full.
Creative thinking indeed :yes:
