Cranberry Beans from Rancho Gordo
The Cranberry Bean hails from Colombia, where it might be found in salads, soups or even refried. Research suggests this form of the Cranberry bean could be the precursor to all forms of this bean, including the popular Borlotti. This bean is excellent in Pasta e Fagiole, with chunky vegetables and pasta.
About the Producer:
For the uninitiated, it might seem odd that freshness matters when it comes to dried beans. But in fact, a dried bean is alive - remember that you can plant them! So knowing that Steve from Rancho Gordo only grows small amounts of his incredble heirloom beans means that each season, you're getting the freshest bean possible.
