Cranberry beans

Chestnut-y  •  Velvety  •  Plump 

  

These striking red-and-cream marbled beans are beloved around the world, especially Northern Italy. And for good reason: we love their plumpness, nutty flavor, and velvety smooth texture. As a bonus, they produce a rich, meaty broth, making these beans one of the best choices for stews and other brothy dishes. They hold their shape well, so try them in pasta and salads too. Harvested: Fall 2021

Just look at them beans

They look like wood and then cook up into plump little delicious things. These were the first beans I ever cooked correctly so I might be biased, but I think they're great. Just look at them beans!

So good! So easy!

I was raised as a beans out of the can gal but after reading Primary Beans how to cook guides and cooking them from scratch I am never going back! All the beans I have purchased so far are incredible quality and flavor. I love the descriptions on the bags and helpful flavor profiles.
