    Simple and delicious! We live in south Florida and only buy conecuh! Grilled, breakfast, recipes—can’t beat the flavor. I wanted seconds and thirds…hearty and not mushy like some recipes.

    Use dry Camellia beans and Conecuh Cajun sausage**NO NEED TO SOAK the beans. Cook the beans in a slow cooker on low for 7 hours with chicken broth & water, peppers, onions, garlic, celery and creole seasonings. After 6 hours smash some of the beans to thicken the sauce. Cook one more hour and enjoy!!

    Made this for lunch today, perfect recipe for a bitter cold day. Instead of using 2 cans of kidney beans, I added leftover corn and lima beans. Also I used Fire-roasted diced tomatoes instead of plain tomatoes. It is excellent, I will add this to my list of favorite recipes. Of course, I served it over rice.

    I’ve made a similar dish for years with the hickory sausage and love it so much that I came to your website to browse. Found this recipe, added some fresh thyme like what is mentioned in y’alls recipe and it is so much more flavorful!! I will definitively be trying other recipes on your site!
