On a different note, my wife hates beans. I don't know if it was before she met me, or after she smelled one of my bean incidents? ;)
Have you ever tried the Mexican herb "epazote"? Epazote is also known as the bean herb, because it makes beans more digestable and reduces gas. It is in most Mexican pinto bean recipes. Some folks claim it has an off flavor, but I like both the fresh and the dried. The fresh should be treated like a bay leaf and removed from the pot before serving.
