I LOVE using all kinds of fresh mushrooms, sweet peppers red, orange
and yellow. I find the small orange and yellow sweets the best flavor for my taste. Green bell peppers are also
used for flavor variations.
CARAMELIZED ONIONS GIVE DISHES A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TASTE THEN SIMPLY
PUTTING FRESH ONIONS IN YOUR POTAGE. IT"S A MATTER OF TASTE!
A favorite caramelizing product is Tony Chachere's CREOLE
Seasoning (and others). I love Ethiopian to Mexican flavor choices and ALWAYS use fresh beans in my dishes; beans you
have to soak for 8 hours or more or less. I enjoy cooking slow while watching t.v. at night for a hearty breakfast in the
morning. I use 3-4 cups of dried beans which need around 8 cups of water. I use a tablespoon or two of Maple Syrup "from
the tree" sometimes for sweetening along with fresh Ginger. If you aren't sure of the seasoning use less not more then
season further for taste.
