Red Beans And Rice
I love Beans of all kinds and I will cook them up in a tinkle of an eye. One thing you much know you got to cook beans in smoke meat so they can get that flavor.It don't have to be pork you can cook them in smoke turkey tails,"yes sir"
1 pound of dry red beans clean and picked
2 smoke turkey tails
1 pound smoke sausages sliced
1 large onion chopped
2 garlic clove mashed
1/2 cup celery
1/8 teaspoon cayanna pepper
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 cup Uncle Ben’s long grain rice (cooked)
1. Boil turkey tails in 8 cups of water 1 hour
2. Add Beans and cook 1 hour
3. Add all ingredients to the cooking beans.(not rice)
4. Cook 30 minutes
5.start mashing some of the beans on the side of the pot with a big spoon
to make them creamy.... beans need to cook 30 minute more with the sliced smoke sausages.
6.Take out turkey tails before serving over rice
Black Eyes Peas And Bacon
6 cans Black eye peas. I always uses kroger,they never let me down.
Green Fries Apples
Potatoes are always used for Fries.I like to change up sometimes and make an hit with green apple fries. places them in front next time when you are going to have that cook out or just a hot sweet snack.
4 granny smith apple, peeled, cored and sliced into french fry sticks
mix all dry ingredient together and place in a bag 1/2 cup cornstarch,1 cup all purpose flour,1/4 cup sugar,1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon....salt to taste if you like. Place few in the the bag and shake until coated very well.
You don’t want to make these too much ahead of time because they will lumpy, you want to serve them hot and crispy not soggy.
It's funny, I was raise in Texas and my mother never cook grits. When I married, my husband folks who lived in New Orleans ate them just with butter.So when I started cooking them I had to add a little some some to them "some taste".
Grits has been a part of the life of every Southern of whatever race, background, gender, and income; and whereas, grits could very well play a vital role in the future of not only in the south , but also the world,
Grits are usually either yellow or white, depending on the color of corn. The most commonly version found in supermarkets is "quick" grits in which the germ and hull have been removed, so grits can cook fast and quick.if not if will take 30 minute to cook.

"All cooks knows" you never can go wrong when you serve broccoli. This recipe I am sharing is just a plain simple dish you can try in the place of mesh potatoes.
