Three Bean Chili and Shoofly Pie

I made our favorite chili last night for dinner. Usually Tom makes it using canned beans. This time I made with InstantPot beans. I used one cup each of dried kidney, pinto and black beans for 35 minutes with natural release. The beans were still a little underdone so next time a little longer. Here is the chili all made up:

I also made Shoofly Pie. I used up the last of the sorghum molasses I brought back from Tennessee. Here it is after baking:

It was way too molassesy for us to eat. But we are feeding it to our toothless old goat Zeus who loves it. So I might save the recipe just for him.

    I’m glad your chili turned out well. I’m not sure if I’d like Shoofly pie, never having had it. I guess it’s not all bad, if Zeus loves it!

      I am in some hot water with a friend who grew up with this pie for feeding it to my goat. But she says she will show me how to make it.

        Well, you’ll have to give a report on that, whenever it happens! Sorry about your being in hot water!!
