    Kidney beans are from French beans. Have a read through the posts above, and some specific varieties are mentioned.

    Thanks for these...most of my beans swelled whilst we were on hols and won't be great for freezing so I was at a loss at what to do with them but the recipes all look delicious. Now quite happy to leave the larger beans on the plants

    This is probably a silly question, but I want to make the tomato and bean soup using fresh shelly beans.
    Do I have to boil the beans separately and then throw away the water, then add them to the soup, or can I just throw them in fresh?

    Please ignore everything I say, I make it up as I go along, not only do I generally not believe what I write, I never remember it either.

    I put fresh shelly beans into casseroles as they are Womble. Still here, as you can see!

    Two sheds does the nut roast freeze OK, was thinking it would be good to take camping.

    Nut and bean roasts freeze well, Bren. They'd be more useful for camping if they were formed into patties - these can be heated up in a frying pan - or sliced before you freeze them.
