A washday tradition.

Top Review by Miss Annie

Steve, awesome is all I can say. Love those Cajun red beans. A washday tradition for sure, put it on and forget it when you are doing the laundry. They only change I made was to omit the ham. They ham hocks I had were very meaty, and almost made half pound when I pulled the meat off the bones. The flavor was just great. Served with green onions on the side and some bacon fat cornbread!!! Thanks for posting this recipe.
