Odds 'N Ends Soup

Thanks for all the recipes Molly, They look delicious. I have a question concerning kidney beans. All I've seen in the store say they have sugar added. Is it enough to drain and rinse these to be rid of the added sugar? I already rinse because my hubby can;t have sodium.

hI fRANNIE ...I checked the beans in my cupboard last night and didn't find any with added sugars. They are just the generic brand I get at our local grocery. I would guess that rinsing would help and what would be left is minimal. Anyone else want to offer an opinion on that?

I rinse them anyway too to remove the "tinny" taste.

You can also cook up a batch of beans and then freeze in portion size packages. It's easy to toss them in the crockpot with some water and let them cook all day.
