    Rev. Roy's Note:

    I found this recipe in "The New Orleans CookBook" by Rima & Richard Collin. It was an incredible hit the first night with family and friends, and it gets even better the next day. I was unable to find pickled pork and used salt pork instead. Delete the salt from the recipe if you make this substitution. I highly recommend pan-baked corn bread on the side with this one (see New Orleans Skillet Baked Cornbread).

      Using Salt Pork or even bacon will not give you the same effect. Its good but for the real deal here is a suggested recipe so that you can make your own (Pickle Meat aka Pickled Pork #30250) Try it, it is definately worth it! Other than that, this recipe is right on. I also am a fan of not using the basil but I would not sub anything for it, just omit it. I miss home now.

      As a native New Orleanean, I make this dish all the time (as did those several generations before me). My only suggestions would be to add 1 cup of chopped celery and substitute marjoram for the basil. It truly makes our Mondays special around here.

      Beyond a doubt the best red beans and ham I have ever made or tasted! I substituted 6 thin slices of bacon for the salt pork but otherwise followed the recipe. I took the suggestion and made this the night before. The next morning I sacrificed a few of the beans on top in order to remove the coagulated fat. I was surprised at how little fat there was. This is definitely not the typical New Orleans hot and spicey red beans and rice. It's mildly flavored and should be a big hit with kids. I've made a note to double the "heat" next time. An outstanding recipe. Thank you soooo much, Rev. Roy.
