Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Black Bean Soup #3

soups, pork

1/2 cup oil, olive
1/2 lb salt pork; diced
1 lb ham hocks; 2 pcs.
8 large onions, chopped
6 garlic cloves; minced
6 celery stalks; chopped
2 lb beans, black
1/2 teaspoon pepper, cayenne
4 teaspoon cumin, ground
4 can chicken broth (large)
1/4 cup vinegar, wine
1 cup sherry, dry
1 condiments

Heat oil in a 10 to 12 qt. pan over med. heat. Add salt pork, ham, onion, garlic, celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegs. are very soft and lightly browned (abt. 40 min.) Rinse and sort beans, drain, and add to pan along with red pepper, cumin and broth. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat, cover and simmeer until bean mash easily--2 to 3 hrs. (If using ham hocks, remove & cool. Shred meat & return to pan--discard skin & bones.) Skim and discard fat from soup. Whirl soup, a portion at a time, in blender or food processor until smooth. Stop here if serving next day. Cover and refrigerate. Return soup to pot and heat to steaming, stirring often. Blend in vinegar and sherry. Pass condiments at table to add to individual servings.
