Red kidney beans are a favourite in the cuisines of the Caribbean – from Mexican Chili con Carne to Jamaica’s Rice and Peas. With their bright colour, floury texture and light flavour they lend themselves to subtle spicing and form an attractive and versatile ingredient. Before Cooking: * Soak in water for at least 5 hours. * Pour away the water. * Boil briskly in fresh water for at least 10 minutes.
