Organic Vermont Cranberry Beans - Garden Treasures Farm - Dried

1 pound - Washington

A variety dating back to the 1800's from the northeastern US, this Vermont Cranberry Bean is great tasting. It has a similar but fuller flavor to the pinto bean.  Good eating almost any way you want: soups, boiled, re-fried, or in a cold salad.

More vibrantly "red" than the standard, mid-western cranberry bean, these beans are beautiful.  Perfect for re-fried beans or a red bean stew.
