The family secret for baked beans for generationsReview by fredUnlike Great Northern, marrow beans cook up tender. I use about half the sugar called for in the recipe.
We usually had a home made bread around, so after we had them for dinner, we'd make baked bean sandwiches for tromping thru the woods. High in protein, complex carbs, fiber and flavor. Exactly what you need on a crisp autumn day to keep you going.
outstandingly deliciousReview by Leter WindstormWhen cooked, these beans have a taste that slightly resembles red meat. You don't need to add a lot of spices or herbs to perk up the flavor of these.
Delicious!Review by JuanitaDry, Marrow beans are quite light-colored and round. However, when cooked, they appear similar to Great Northern. That's where the similarity ends. The flavor is superior and the texture is light and creamy.
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.
