Excellent bean!Review by JuanitaSnow Caps beans are creamy smooth with a wonderful flavor. However, for optimal texture, do NOT add salt during their cooking. They also good in soup and can beautifully when processed at 10 lbs. pressure for 90 minutes.
Delicious and versatileReview by SabineThese are nice, plump, creamy beans that are reminiscent of cranberry beans but have a thinner skin. Great in soups, although they do fall apart a bit if cooked overlong -- add them already cooked at the end to maintain a clear broth, or let them soften in the soup to give it some starchy body. Also wonderful by themselves, dressed with olive oil, lemon zest/juice, and sage. A bean for all occasions!
Snow Cap 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.
