Cranberry Beans, aka Shell Beans

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?
