I just started learning to cook, myself. Lentil soup's all I've done so far, but I was planning to try maple-glazed carrots tonight... before some stuff got in the way. The soup was good, though! I want to learn several kinds of soup before I do anything else, because it can be made cheaply and isn't too hard, either.

Slow-cooked Cardamom Beans


Ingredients:

1.2 lb dried beans (such as pinto, navy beans, and northern beans)
1 cup dark maple syrup
2-3 chopped medium onions (such as Spanish yellow, red, or sweet white)
2 tsp to 1 tblsp green cardamom seeds
2-3 gallons pork broth, or as needed
1 tblsp cracked black pepper, or to taste
4 oz black garlic, or one head roasted garlic, or one head pickled garlic, or one head garlic (skin removed, no need to slice or mince)
diced ham to taste (I prefer about a pound)
2 heaping tblsp mustard powder





1) Soak beans over night, around eight to ten hours. Drain and pour into three quart saucepan, or larger. Fill pan with water until an inch or two above beans. Heat and boil beans until just soft enough to smoosh with fingers, making sure to replenish water continually to original amount. Meanwhile, begin preheating oven to 350 F. Drain the beans after they're softened. Set aside.

2) In a 4.5 quart dutch oven or roaster, mix together mustard powder, pepper, garlic, ham, onion, maple syrup, and beans. Do not mash. Stir in pork broth until just covered to two inches above the bean mixture. Place in oven and cook four to twelve hours, to taste and doneness. After first three hours, check beans, making sure to stir again and replenish broth whenever the beans appear dry. Periodically check throughout cook time. The longer the beans cook, the more smoky-flavored, thick, and dark the beans are.

3) When desired bean consistency and flavor are reached, remove from heat and cool. The dish continues to thicken as it cools, so add more broth to loosen it up when necessary.


Side note; I don't add salt, since the diced ham and pork broth usually provide plenty of salt content.

Get yourself a slow-cooker crockpot:

Recipe: Soup
- Sliced vegetables
- Meat, cubed small
- Canned cut Tomatoes (optional)
- 2T. dried beans or rice (optional)
- 2 C. meat broth
- 6 C. water
- Seasonings to taste.
Simmer on Low setting 8 hours.

If that's a little general for you, the specifics are where it gets interesting...
The Chinese wok stir-fry recipe is even simpler.

I have been cooking for over 14 years. What tips are you looking for? Prep work such as cutting onions, bell pepper, etc. or entire recipes. When it comes to recipes, what is easy and hard for you? I can give you something simple like Chicken Marsala, or something complex like Beef Bourguignon or Beef Rouladen.

What recipes are you looking for as well. Bake, boil, stir-fry, grill, smoke? I have about 500 or so recipes I cook for various occasions. Narrow down what you want and I would love to help!

I'm not much of a cook. My wife is the chef of the family, but I do love grilling. Here's my specialty:

Jerid's Special Grilled Wings:
- Chicken Wings
- Olive Oil
- Sake
- Soy Sauce
- Brown Suger
- Minced Garlic
- Scallions

I marinate them over night then toss em' on the grill. They're always a hit. I also heavily baste corn on the cob with soy sauce then putting that on the grill. I like to get them a little burnt. Best corn ever.

Here's my recipe for hot water.

Prep:

You need a cup (It's better to get one that has a handle, because the cup can get hot from the hot water).



You need a pot. A small one is O.K. You don't need a big pot.



You need water. Fill a glass with water (Time saving tip: You can measure the water in the cup you want to use, or just put the water straight in the pot until you think you have enough).



Steps:

1) Place water in glass in the pot (if you haven't already done so). Put emptied glass in sink, so you can wash it later.



2) Put pot on stove.



3) Turn on the stove. Depending on the kind of stove you have, it might use fire, or it might use electricity. Either kind of stove is fine.



4) Wait for the smoke to come up from the water (most people call it steam, or water vapor).



5) Depending on how hot you want the water to be, you can leave it on the stove for longer. If you do, you will reach the hottest water when it starts to bubble a lot (the technical term is boil).




Tips and tricks:

Some people use a microwave to make hot water. If you do that put the water in the cup and stick that in the microwave.

Warning!!! Don't use metal cups, or plastic cups that can melt. Styrofoam cups in a microwave actually puts toxins in the water (for real).

Other people have a small electric pot that they use to make hot water (I even heard of people using coffee makers that can make coffee and hot water. Those are really cool.)

Drinking hot water from the sink is a bad idea. That water is not safe to drink. Ask the people in Flynt, Michigan.



I hope you will all enjoy my recipe!

EDIT:

Be careful. The water will be hot, and you can get burned with the hot water. Maybe you can get a safety cup with the words "Caution Hot" on it, for extra safety.



O.K. enjoy the hot water!
