cranberry bean furlough

The chicken livers are still sitting in my fridge.  I'm doing research, looking for the right recipe, and absolutely stalling.  They are a bit intimidating, this mystery hiding in an opaque plastic tub.  The sell by date is 3/19.  The clock is ticking.

Meanwhile...cranberry beans.  What lovely little things they are.  Pleasantly simmering in a broth of olive oil (lots of it), sage leaves, garlic cloves (unpeeled), plum tomatoes and water.  I spooned mine over some stale rye bread.  It's a Bon Appetit recipe and of course it called for fresh beans.  But, they were in Italy and I am not.  I can't wait to look for these this summer. 


Thank you for this pretty picture,

  1. Lovely! Excited to hear about the chicken livers. I'm guessing it will pair nicely with lots and lots of sautéed onions.
