Harvest Monday: January 12, 2015: Borlotti Beans with Garlic, Thyme and Tomatoes
Most definitely no harvests any time in the near future - a few months at least! So for Harvest Monday, I'm just sharing what I did with some of my harvests.
I cooked borlotti beans with thyme and garlic (all fresh from my garden this year) along with some stewed tomatoes. I think I'll increase the number of borlotti bean plants next year - they are one of my favourite beans.with such a creamy texture when cooked. Easy to grow (bush bean although they can get pretty tall) and so delicious!
The stewed tomatoes and onions were actually canned in 2013 - if canned properly, they can last a long time but I always give a good sniff before using them (just in case). I also have one jar each left of "nuttin' but tomatoes" and Red Wine and Herb tomato sauce in the cold room.
