I was in one of the supermarkets the other day and as I was passing the dried beans section, something I hadn’t seen in a while was caught in the corner of my eye! Haricot beans!!!! I remembered them from my childhood when my mum used to make homemade baked beans. I had to grab a packet and do them myself, reliving my childhood days!! (we all have memories of those). So here goes, making baked beans is super easy…
