Karl’s Guinness Ham and Beans

Jan asked for this dish in the morning, as a result, I was not able to pre-soak my beans overnight. This left me with the “quick soak” method—bring a pot of water and beans to a boil and then let them rest for an hour off the heat. My variation to this method is that I make a rich ham broth and then soak the beans in this flavorful, salty liquid.

Karl’s Corned Beef

I have never been overly fond of corned beef and cabbage, but like most part Irish-Americans I have usually made it on St. Patrick’s Day.  One reason for this dislike was that—like most Americans—I would go to Safeway and buy the plastic package of bright red meat. This sour meat would be tossed in the pot with potatoes, carrots and cabbage to be boiled to death.

Karl’s Guinness Beer Bread II

Jan wanted my Karl’s Guinness Beer Bread as her carbs for dinner tonight. Looking at the recipe I posted in December I realized I had made a significant change since that time. I found that instead of white sugar my orange infused sugar makes this bread even better. With the strong beer flavor you do not taste “orange,” but the orange zest in the sugar adds a depth that is nonpareil.
