Ojo de Cabra beans (organic)

$9.00


Meaty  •  Velvety  •  Plump


These velvety smooth beans with their eye-catching dark stripes come from Northern Mexico - where flour tortillas, grilled meats, and fresh cheeses reign. We love their robust meaty flavor, full-bodied broth, and versatility. These plump beans are one of our top choices for recipes calling for pinto, but they also pair well with Mediterranean flavors (think: feta and greens). Harvested: Fall 2021

Frijoles de la olla

If you've never had frijoles de la olla, your life is about to be changed. We’ve experimented with enough variations to know that the ultimate Mexican-style brothy beans comes from a two-step process: 1) cook up a well-seasoned pot of beans, and 2) fold in a caramelized sofrito.

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.

Fascinating Bean!

The name is so alluring! The color of the dry bean is like a cat's eye marble or marbled paper! The bean cooks up big and goes with everything I add it to! Just love Eye of the Goat beans!

Delicious but "rocky"

Love eye of the goat beans and these did not disappoint on taste. Unfortunately, in just a 1 cup dried bean serving, there were two small pebbles. Since pebbles don't float, they did not get discarded in the rinse before cooking stage. Could have broken a tooth so I am going to have to pick through every bean in the future unless someone posts a clever way to find pebbles in beans. :)

Thank you so much for the feedback! We're so glad you enjoyed our Ojo de Cabra beans. We work hard to remove pebbles and any other agricultural debris, but at the end of the day we're consuming an agricultural product with touch points with the soil/earth so please do always sort through and rinse your (any) beans before cooking :)

My favorite so far

Wow, I’m not sure what to say about these. My husband tried them and the first comment was “what kind of beans are these, they are amazing”. Can’t wait to order again.
