Louisiana Daily Photo: Blue Runner Beans

Busy Louisiana cooks don’t always have the time to wash, rinse, soak and simmer their beans for hours on end.

That’s when they reach for a can of Blue Runners.

The Gonzales, Louisiana-based company has been running strong for almost 100 years (est.1918) and while I would never resort to eating a canned bean, I can see why folks in these parts keep a spot in their cupboard for the product.

Next month I’ll be heading up to Gonzales for the World Jamabalaya Championship and will run by the Blue Runner factory to take a picture of the mothership.
