Note: To speed up cooking of beans and reduce the gas beans produce, soak beans in cold water overnight or for three hours during the day. You can also use the ham hocks as your meat side dish. However, ham hocks are a high-fat food.
Like salmon, but can't get fresh salmon in your area for a decent price? Or you just don't trust yourself when buying fish? This is a recipe everyone in your family will love...
For a little different flavor, I sometimes add a bit of dried mint into the mix. It's great both ways!
Mint is a great herb that you can grow at home and have ready when you need it... It needs little water and grows like a weed (in fact, it is). Just get some fresh mint at the market, clip the ends of the stems, and place them in an opaque cup with some water (water submerging the stem, not the leaves on the top) until it begins to grow roots (4-5 days, changing water every day or 2). When roots are long enough, place in soil. You'll soon have plenty of mint!
