FREESTYLE BAKED BEANS

I made a pot of slow-baked Southwest Gold beans in bean broth, using a blend of Indian spices - redolent Garam Masala, yellow Turmeric, smoky Tandoor, savory Tikka, and red chili-garlic flakes. I soaked the beans, salted, for 15 hours and then slow-cooked them for 5 hours with spices and chicken bone broth in the oven at 250 F. Delicious, served with grated Asiago cheese.

Great beans

I "collect" interesting beans. I love to try new ones and also like to support small businesses. This shop ticked the boxes...and the beans were really good.

good, not great

Maybe my expectations for this bean were too high. They were good, not great. I cooked them like I cook the beans I get at my local store, so the freshness did not affect cook time. In a blind taste test, I really don't think I could tell them apart from the beans I usually buy for about 1/3 the price. Hopefully the other varieties I ordered will be worth it. I appreciate your commitments to the environment and to farmers. Thank you.

Very good...and they grow well too!

These beans were very tasty and made a good broth. With the taste profile, they're probably very good in a large number of dishes.

I also grew some in my garden and found them to have high yields with 10-14 pods on each plant (most dry beans have 8-10). They took about 4 months from planting to harvest. FYI, like most dry beans, these are bushes.

Get them while they last!

The southwest gold beans are incredible. They were part of the quarterly membership box. As soon as I had them, I had to place a separate order of Just the southwest gold beans to stock my pantry.

Just as delicious as they are beautiful

These might be my new favorite bean variety. They are so beautiful and maintain a lovely creamy texture and flavor when cooked. Will be enjoying these all summer long with tomatoes, corn, and avocado, and I plan to try these out in some chillis and posole-inspired soups and stews when the weather cools down. Can't wait to make these again!
