Also known as Borlotti Beans, these gorgeous speckled, shelled beans are a great replacement for pinto beans and are well loved in Italian and Portuguese cooking. They are nutty in flavor and creamy in texture once cooked.
Store in dry storage, in a plastic bag or glass jar.
**Please pick over these beans before cooking as they have been mechanically harvested and the occasional pebble may have jumped in the mix.**
These beans are grown by Morningstar Meadow farms in Glover, Vermont. Seth specializes in growing dry beans for us and does an excellent job on his hill farm. He learned much of what he knows from Jack Lazor at Butterworks Farm. Mentoring is a rich tradition up here in Vermont.
