Customer Reviews

YUMMY!!! review by Rockin' Robin

I 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 tasty review by lbgeorgia

We 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 KJ

We 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.
