    Re: Beans, beans, the magickal fruit....

    I quite agree. Canned food is vile.

    I doubly hate that they put high fructose corn syrup in the tinned beans here. Beans do not need high fructose corn syrup in them. :mad:

    Re: Potatoes

    The lumps are the best part, IMO. I can't handle mashed potatoes that don't have lumps in them.

    There is where your problem is. You're only meant to pass it through once. Then, add the [vegan] butter and milk and gently fold to combine.
