Taking the Pulse

Joe Sevier asks chefs how they like to cook beans and argues that they’re actually a great summertime food:

“If putting a big pot of dried beans on the stove to simmer away for few hours sounds like a totally winter thing to you, you may be missing out on some of summer’s best dinners. As we’ve pointed out recently, sometimes cooking a large batch of something low and slow is the answer to cutting down on dinnertime stress.”
