A Quick Lesson To Properly Cook Beans

13 May

This video is from the owner of Rancho Gordo who grows delicious varieties of heirloom beans.

He also has a cookbook and a monthly newsletter that includes recipes. The latest May newsletter has a Garbanzo Herb Salad that sounds perfect with the warmer weather. If you visit Napa, you can find his beans at The Fatted Calf and in The Oxbow Market, or go online to shop…there are some great gift boxes!

Another bonus about dried beans compared to canned is that you will save money plus they have much better flavor and texture. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!
