Wonderful flavorReview by Koffee KupThe flavor of these beans is good to use with so many things. I had very good results cooking them with ham hocks, peppers, green beans and canned tomatoes. A meal in a bowl. All I needed to add was a plate heaped with hot corn bread.
YUMMY!!!Review by Rockin' RobinI LOVE these so much I got some for my parents and brother & sister-in-law. Now they are crazy about them too!! I love how big they get and how meaty they taste. These are now my favorite bean, although I haven't tried all of them yet...but so far they are number one! I just cook them with ham. YUMMY!
very tastyReview by lbgeorgiaWe are working through North Bay Trading's beans - I must say they have all been great! These Tongues of fire cooked up wonderfully in our electric pressure cooker this morning. I recommend these and the adzuki.
Fabulous!Review by KJWe are most impressed with North Bay's Tongues of Fire beans. They arrived wonderfully clean. Sorting revealed a couple of very clean, bean-sized rocks; less than we've found in other brands of dried beans. (This is not a problem - beans always should be sorted.) They cooked up plump and succulent. The smell was fabulous, both cooked and, surprisingly, uncooked. These will become a mainstay.
Tongues of Fire 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.
