Distinct flavor, cooks up tenderReview by DeliciousWhen these beans are dry and in the bag they have a distinct roasted/chocolatey/coffee aroma. Its very nice and they are simply beautiful to look at. After soaking 8 hours and cooking they turn a nice dark chocolatey brown color. This is my favorite new bean. The taste is very distinct yet mild and the beans are large, just the right size. They cooked uniformly, which means they are fresh (4/28/15). I use a caffeine-free coffee alternative called "Roma". The next batch I make I'm going to try adding that to them to accentuate the flavor even more. I can't believe these aren't more widely known and eaten. Everyone should try these. Hearty and delicious. Couldn't stop myself from eating an entire bowl fresh off the stove while testing to see if they were done.

Scarlet Runner 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.
