First of all, let me make clear that the "I" in the text above is the
author of the article, not Johnnae.  I tried to track down the source
of the original recipe, since the author doesn't identify it.  The
1545 date makes "A Proper New Book of Cookery" a likely suspect.  It
has a recipe for fried beans, but I believe those would be fava beans.
