Beans - how do you cook them?

15 years ago

I stumbled across a recipe for beans that looked really good. Lots of chopped onion, bits of ham, a little celery, spices, etc. I had a 1 lb bag of 15 bean mix in the pantry, so I tossed it in the crock pot. The recipe called for adding a small chopped raw onion, but I decided to double the amount called for and saute them until they were golden instead of raw. I also increased the spices and had more than enough ham.

It tastes a little like compost.

Ever time I see a recipe for beans it appeals to me, but they have such an earthy taste that unless they are swimming in BBQ sauce and bacon, they are too earthy tasting for my tastebuds.

How do you make them palatable?
