Red Beans - Poor Holler Style

Red Beans - Poor Holler Style created by sloe cooker

Red Kidney beans by Camellia in LA are far superior beans to anything else on the market. I get them from Cajungrocer.com since I can't find them in my area. Additionally, They stay good for a very long time. Some beans get too old, too hard - these are always perfect. Tonight I found a bag that was previously opened and put in a zip loc that is at least four years old. I cooked them and still top quality. This is so delicious with lard, you don't even need to add meat - hence Poor Holler Style. You'll never eat better - more delicious beans!

  • You may or may not need to add a little water halfway through cooking time. It depends on how much water the been need.
