Cook the hominy to make posole - then make a nice New Mexico green chili stew. 

Significant Eater will love that, since she spent many "formative" years there.

@Kerry Beal beat me to it. I love posole, but made with Rancho Gordo hominy, it's several planes above that made with canned.

 

@Chris Amirault, if memory serves me right, posted a posole recipe years ago that he credited to his mother-in-law. It was my introduction to posole. I make it two or three times every winter, now.

Got the new bean box today 😁.  

 

The beans in my bedroom are like kudzu in a southern forest.

I got my shipping confirmation this morning so they're on their way.  I almost put this shipment on hold because I still have a bunch left but I knew this one would have the calendar and that traditional New Year's item that I need for good luck!

I think this is from last year's batch, but tonight I cooked up a little more than half a package of "Eye of the Goat" beans, along with pork hock bones with leftover meat, some smoked bratwurst as meat insurance, and some mushrooms, red bell peppers, celery and onion that needed cooking. It took 3 cycles in the Instant Pot of 35 minutes on High Pressure, then natural release for 20 - 30 minutes, then adding a bit of water and repeating, to get the beans to the creamy consistency I'd expected. I'm glad I persevered. We both thought this delicious! I have a huge backlog of beans (and I haven't joined the club for that reason, yet) but when I'm ready to buy more the Ojo do Cabra beans will be on the order form.
