On Think PC, I talk about doing what you can to protect and conserve your joints and energy. I think that the investment of a pressure cooker augments that philosophy.
I enjoy not having to lug heavy cans of beans home from the store and into the house. I also enjoy not having to take the empty cans out for recycling. Since dried beans are cheaper than the canned versions, there's also a savings to be had on my grocery bill. As a result, my pressure cooker has paid for itself!
I cook them up a big batches, which are then partitioned into containers for freezing.
So, what would you like tonight, dear? Bean salad, bean soup, bean casserole or bean brownies?
