I'm sorry, I should have known better! Kombu is what people always say in that sentence, for some strange reason; maybe the lore comes from macrobiotics, and that's the Japanese name? Anyway, I'm holding a package here in front of me, and in very large letters it says, KELP; then, in smaller letters, Wild Atlantic Kombu. On the back, it says, "Kelp - the all-purpose sea vegetable - similar to Japanese kombu." Further on, "Kelp in Beans - Natural glutamates in kelp will enhance flavors and tenderize high protein foods like beans." (I think tenderize is the code word there!) On that mixture - it sounds like poetry! Tongues of Fire, European Soldiers, and French navy beans!?! I have visions of Romantic poets blazing off to the Napoleonic Wars from that! I don't know; but I think a navy bean is a navy bean is a navy bean, and O Avoid, despite the beauty of the thing.
