    Oh and if you're smoking a turkey or a brisket, let it drip into your beans while they are in the smoker. Ho yeah!

    Sorry, I can't help with that. I'm a country boy, from the South. Everything involves pork. Hahahaha

    We enjoy beans here. Usually slow simmered. Due to dietary constraints of S/O, I don't add pork. As pointed out...... There are many different types of beans and many different ways to cook them. Have you tried chili with beans? Could be a starting point. Experiment with seasonings.

    It is suggested not to add high acidic foods to beans until they are mostly cooked (acidic ingredients are said to inhibit cooking). We can up beans here as well (pints = 75 minutes at appropriate PRESSURE for your altitude). When canning, you can add acidic ingredients even if doing raw pack.

    Soups and so forth might be a decent place to start! Might be easier to start with some small (the smaller the better!) cans of beans. Or cook up a small amount....... Then add a SMALL amount to, let's say a veggie soup (white beans could be yummy there).

    Here is a recipe suggestion:

    Taco Soup

    1 lb ground beef, browned OR a pint of home canned ground beef
    1 15-16 ounce can/jar tomatoes
    1 15-16 ounce can/jar pinto beans
    2 15-16 ounce cans/jars ranch type beans
    1 15-16 ounce can/jar corn
    1 12-16 ounce can/jar tomatoes with green chili
    1 package dry ranch dressing mix (OPTIONAL - I do not add)

    Combine all cans/jars (liquid included). Add additional liquid if necessary. Heat until hot. Can top with cheese, sour cream etc.

    I have been known to make a double or triple batch of this and then can it (75 minutes for pints at appropriate pressure for your altitude) for my truck driving S/O.

    I have also thought that a can/jar (or even fresh/frozen!) green beans (or maybe peas?) might be a decent addition.

    Keep in mind...... The various pork additions (usually smoked) are for flavor. However.......... The WONDERFUL news if you want the flavor without the pork (I deal with this here) you **can** substitute! A smoked turkey leg in place of a ham hock can work! Beef (preferred) or turkey bacon instead of pork bacon! Be creative!
