If you have a hard time cooking meat until is is tender and juicy, you might want to try cooking in a bean pot. It also keeps food warm longer while serving.
Since your Bean Pot is made out of clay it also retains cold. This means you can serve potato salad (or any other dish you want to keep cold) in your chilled Bean Pot. It will help keep your food cold while sitting at your table.
The Bean Pot also makes a wonderful ice bucket for casual dinners.
Are you wondering what in the world you would cook in a bean pot besides beans? Well, you have come to the right place. On this page I will share bean pot recipes that I have found from the internet, other Designers, and former customers. If you have tried a recipe, please feel free to comment about it here!
