Bean Baking

In the chilly polar regions of Capepo, nothing beats a nice hearty meal of baked beans. During the winter solstice, it is said that baking an assortment of beans will bring good luck for the upcoming year. While the meaning beside this tradition has faded in recent years, the act of baking beans stands strong.

History

For thousands of years capsains of Northern Verhsta have used beans and lentils as a major component of their diets. Their accessibility, abundance and easiness to grow make them an ideal food. Over a hundred plant species in the family Fabaceae are harvested specifically for their seeds. The act of baking them on the winter solstice is a more recent occurance, seen only within the last couple hundred years.

The first notable bean bakings happened in the small mountainside town Dandarl, a historic market-town who advertises itself as a the global bean capital. According to folklore, a young woman named Nara Czadende had a vision when she baked a selection of beans on the night of a winter solstice. This vision told her that the next year of her life would be the most incredible, and sure enough, it was. Nara went on to tell everybody in the town about the vision, so the next winter solstice, everybody baked an assortment of beans.

Years went by, and it seemed that this bean baking had an actual improvement on people's lives. Some theorised that certain beans had a more positive impact, so each year people would switch out beans for others, and try and bake different combinations.
