Sweet Beans

In Japan people eat their beans sweet. Many desserts include sweet adzuki beans; there is even a hot, sweet bean soup with balls of mochi that people eat in the winter. In the U.S. no one eats their beans sweet. But today I did. I cooked some pinto beans with apple and onion slices, drained them and took out the apple and onion, mixed in some light brown sugar, and served hot alongside a microwaved sweet potato. It was pretty good. George's nose is stuffed up so he couldn't tell how flavorful and delicious they were. Poor George.
