food stores. If you prefer, make your own by combining equal amounts of
dried blackeyed peas, red kidney beans, white kidney beans (cannellini),
green lentils, split peas, black beans, yellow split peas, navy beans,
cranberry (Roman, shell, or shell out) beans, great Northern beans, pinto
beans, small white limas, red lentils, cow peas (field peas), and pink
beans. Avoid using beans such as garbanzos and large lima beans, as these
take longer to cook than other varities.
