I’m 58 and from Mississippi, about 90 miles from New Orleans. I was raised on a farm, and grew up eating Camelia brand beans. It was one of the few things my daddy could cook when my mama was working late. As I became older I took over cooking the beans and Daddy started cooking flapjacks or Jacks to go with them. Daddy would call me on the phone and say “I’ll cook the Jacks”, and I would say, “I’ll cook the beans.” It was a dinner date with my Daddy. I miss him and our meals together, but Camelia brings all the memories back when I cook a pot of Big Lima beans!!
