home remedies for aches/pains aka The Bean Topic

It's not about beans being soft and mushy. Those can still cause gas.

It's all about what you do before you cook them.

Think about it.

What is gas?

I always soak beans in cold water over night. While soaking, the beans swell up and gas is released
in the process. Then I either cook them for several hours on the stove or I place them in a pressure
cooker. The key is to always soak dry beans in cold water for several hours. Depending on the type
of bean, I some times soak them in cold water inside the fridge.

If you purchase box products such as something like 'Beans and Rice' as an example, you might find
you get gas. The reason being is because the beans are more of a processed dehydrated bean that
may still have all it's gaseous properties.

val trust me i soak all my beans either overnight,depending on how big they are ie kidney beans chickpeas etc to a couple of hrs before cooking like lentils or moong............they then give me an intestinal soaking :D

maybe i eat too many? maybe use too many spices coz i do love hot food or plain simple ,some other unexplainable reason.
i see the gas being released overnight,see air bubbles on the surface,guess the rest are released when i devour em' :mrgreen:

nah trust me is sometimes happens,mostly it happened when i was in Pakistan,obviously being a very hot country i used to leave beans overnight to soak and in the morning there was a kinda of bubble wrap coating them,,,kinda of weird that,guess it was coz of the slight warm temps,,but after washing em' they were fine.

it was a bit like yeast frothing away :D
im not saying the bubbles are massive but they lurk in and around the edges.

ok enough farts and bubbles for now,having beans on toast for breakfast,

I often have baked beans, eggs & frankfurters on toast as an easy Friday night dinner while watching the footy. I thought beans on toast was a staple part of the diet throughout the western world :)

No. I don't think I ever heard of eating beans on toast.

Generally, beans such as Great Northern (white) beans, are cooked slowly or pressure cooked and
ate with salt pepper in a bowl. Often to the side and/or in the bowl is onions. Cornbread is generally
a side with a bowl of beans. Many people that eat meat, place a slice or two of bacon or ham bones
to add a meaty flavor.

I like to eat Great Northern beans with onions and cornbread. I some times place worchestchire
sauce in mine. Worchestichire. WishTeaSheer :?

its a very english thing here in the UK, ask Bouldrake or anyone else from the UK,
basically you butter a couple of toasts,warm some beans and put on top,can add a fried egg or two if you are extra peckish...yep we all have our special brekky perks i guess,just kinda shocked that you in the US seem to find it strange,here its very popular.

as far as me being a weirdo hmmm,maybe i should take that as a compliment, nice to have an encounter with the 3rd kind :D

love Steven Spielberg films tho,Jaws my favourite one!

I don't eat meat. At least for the most part I don't. Particularly, I don't eat red meat.

For breakfast I may have any or combo of the following:

Eggs - Fried easy over or scrambled and some times a light omelet
Biscuits - I some times make home made biscuits and I buy frozen biscuits too
Toast - Light toast with a jam such as blackberry or strawberry but I like apple jelly too
Grits - I eat grits with pepper but many people eat them with sugar
Oats - I eat the instant maple flavor light oats usually but some times I eat the 1 minute quaker oats
Gravy - Some times I eat biscuit and gravy
Potatoes - Some times I make hash browns or cut up tiny taters for quick frying
Pancakes/Waffles - I am not very fond of it but I do eat it some times
Juice - I used to always drink orange but now I tend to drink apple
Sweet Breads - Usually first thing in the morning, I drink coffee and often I grab a mini donut or honey bun. In fact, if I do eat breakfast, it is usually at lunch time or later.

In America people eat any or combination of the above and if they eat meat, usually it is bacon, sausage, or ham.

Some Americans and especially children, prefer a cold cereal...Cheerios, etc.

PS. Americans do not eat beans for breakfast. In an omelet one may have mushrooms and tomatoes. Not uncommon to have a bacon lettuce tomato sandwich and some what common to have slices of tomato with breakfast.

Yep, about the same here. People eat whatever they want.

I do eat fruit often and usually the little fruit cups......little plastic cups that have fruit in them and some times jello.

I love grits. Grits are from corn. Many people eat a bowl of grits with sugar and/or sugar and milk.
I have never ate them that way. I like them simply with pepper. Try them some time.

I think primarily grits originated from the American Indian. Altho don't trust me on that because it
could be other countries and cultures had grits too.

Basically it is ground corn. It's a process. It comes from Hominy which is dried corn.

I like Hominy too. In fact, I almost love it.

Grits has been mostly a Southern dish and I mean that is in the Southern US States.
Today however, it is rather popular all over the USA.

I guess it has some healthy properties. Unless you add junk to it. As I said, a lot of people
eat it with sugar and milk. I just eat it with pepper in it. Some people put butter in it.
