Flor de junio beans (organic)

$9.00

Sweet  •  Creamy  •  Smooth

 

These mid-sized beans with attractive pink-purple marbling are an old favorite in Central Mexico for brothy beans like frijoles charros. We love their creamy smooth texture and mildly sweet flavor, which goes perfectly with rich meats and spicy salsas. Cook them into a big pot of beans and garnish with allll the toppings.

 

Looking for heirloom and organic beans? You're in the right place. There are plenty of nuances when it comes to beans, and our beans are from recent harvests, packed with flavor and nutrition, and grown by climate-conscious family farms.

Sourcing notes

The state of Zacatecas, northwest of Mexico City, has a rich history of thriving nomadic tribes as old as the Aztecs, and is the original site for some of the world’s first beans. Today, thousands of experienced small-scale farmers are Mexico’s leading producers of guavas, chiles, nopales, and, of course, beans– benefiting from the sunny, semi-arid climate and rich, red soils.

We partnered with Armando Klein of Darmstadt Organics, who helped organize the farms in his community into a cooperative– so that they can benefit from shared resources and collectively innovate, like achieving organic certification and promoting crops that are important symbols of regional identity.

Frijoles de la olla

First time using the pressure cooker method and the Flor de Junio beans. Usually go half a day in a slow cooker.
Made my go to pot bean recipe which was a pound of beans with onion, garlic, salt, lard, spices with a guajilo and an ancho chili and chicken broth for the liquid.

40 minute, low pressure cook. Beans were tender but still had some tooth-someness
The liquid was flavorful but very liquid. The next day the leftovers were better. The flavors had merried and muted a little, the beans had softened a little more and the broth had thicked quite a bit. I preferred it this way.
Next time I am making this a day ahead so it can develop overnight post cook.

Good beans, better than pintos by far.

A meaty bean that holds it's own in a spicy chili!

I was a bit skeptical that these beans would be different from the ones I pick up at the grocery. I am now a believer! I made a turkey chili in my instant pot using the beans, unsoaked straight from the bag. Instead of retreating to the rear, these beans stood up to the seasoning and made it better. The texture was firm and tasty. I always considered the beans a background ingredient in my Chili - just bland filler that provided extra protein. Not any more! Next try will be meatless chili!
