The other day we went to the ethnic grocery and as usual, as we meandered slowly up the best aisle we came upon strange food products that I have no idea what one might do with.
Many times I buy some of these strange products, which subsequently sit in my pantry shelves for years unused. This time I restrained myself, buying only five bags of Goya canellini beans and a bag of split garbanzos. I have used the canellinis many times in the past -- much richer than great northern beans, their closest standard-grocery-store equivalent. The garbanzos are a new experiment. I'll let you know how they work out.
