~ My Favorite Beans ~Review by DavidThese were a treat to myself and in no way was I disappointed. As another reviewer has noted, the place does indeed smell like potato chips while they're cooking, and the plumpness of the beans after soaking for 8 hours or so along with the creaminess and flavor are wonderful with plenty of added potato dices in my soups and stews. Am sure hoping you'll keep these in stock, North Bay Trading, as these are truly outstanding beans.
GreatReview by nodramamamaLove these beans! They cook up rich and creamy with virtually no broken or parts of beans and are really quite tasty. I will definitely reorder!
AmazingReview by SabineThese beans cook up creamy and hearty, with a taste reminiscent of baked potato. Bonus--they give off a potato chip fragrance while cooking!
Dapple Grey Beans
Easy to Prepare — a little makes a lot
- First, sort beans for any foreign matter and then rinse. Some cooks like to do a preliminary soak by soaking beans in water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
- After optional soaking drain and rinse beans.
- Next, place beans in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, adding water as needed. Simmer time will vary depending on soak time and size of bean.
- Alternatively, some cooks prefer to use crock pot techniques.
- Note: As with any supply of dry natural beans, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your beans first.
Yield — 1 cup weighs about 1/2 pound. 2 cups of dry beans equals about 4-5 cups cooked beans.
Storage — Best if used within 24 months. Store tightly sealed in a dry location away from sunlight.
