I love cranberry beans! I first found them at The Boys, in Delray Beach, FL. Imagine my surprise finding them at Russo’s in Waltham, MA as shell beans! I knew what I was looking at, and did some research to learn their alias’.
I am only sorry I bought less than a half pound! At $.99/lb, I spent all of $.44. This is just a small representation.
Easy to shell, it was quick work for my bounty.
I started by frying some shallots in olive oil, then added the beans and some stock.
You probably noticed that the stripes disappeared once cooked.
I added some brown rice, and had a fabulous meal.
All warmed together.
So yummy! Now to find a farm stand near me….
Does anyone of a Western MA farm stand I could get to?
