“I found canary beans at my local market, but didn’t know what to do with them. So, I bought a pound and stuck them in my pantry. I then researched the internet and found this recipe for Peruvian Canary Bean Stew. So far, it is the one and only recipe I’ve been able to find to do something with these beans. But, perhaps it is the only recipe you’re ever going to need for them!”
