Le cassoulet is a southwestern French food specialty. It's white cannellini-style beans called lingots that are slow-cooked with pork fat and duck fat for flavor. It's a little like Boston baked beans but without the ketchup and molasses. I've made cassoulet many times, but once in a while I buy it in a can. This one was on special at Intermarché for just 4.50 euros for four servings.
I haven't opened this tin yet. I'm not sure if we'll have cassoulet for lunch today or tomorrow. When we do, I'll post some more pictures. The photo above is meant to show the scale of the cassoulet can compared to a medium-size can of red beans. The label says the cassoulet has some saucisses de Toulouse (pork sausages) and duck wings (manchons de canard) in it. Castelnaudary ("the king's new castle"), by the way, is a town between Carcassonne and Toulouse in the southwest which is especially famous for beans cooked this way.
