    Bonnie G #2's Note:

    Posted for ZWT 2012. Found these on the Portugease web site. We love fresh beans in this house and the spices are onces we enjoy. I think you could probebly use any dry bean - but have posted this as listed. Prep time does not include soaking of the beans. Could be a nice side dish, but think I'd add a loaf of fresh made bread, maybe a salad and serve as a main dish on some of those cool fall days.

      These beans came out very well. I normally use a whole lot more ingredients. Its good to be able to make beans that taste good, but are really so easy. The finished product did not really taste like cinnamon, though it did while cooking.
