PicOfTheWeek: A Rainbow of Beans

A rainbow of beans

I had to take a picture of my colorful selection of beans, from this month’s Rancho Gordo Bean Club delivery.

Beans, left to right:

  • Scarlet Runner
  • Domingo Rojo
  • Yellow Eye
  • Azufrado
  • Flagolet
  • Aluba Blanca

How do I cook them? Sorted and rinsed (but not soaked), with 7 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt (and a peeled onion), 35 to 45 minutes at high pressure, depending on the size of the bean, with a natural pressure release. Details here: Pressure Cooker Beans (Basic Technique)

What do you think?

    Your photo makes me want to start cooking immediately. Please share with us how you are going to use each type of bean – alone or as an ingredient in other recipes. Are their flavors as vastly different as their names? Rancho Gordo is the best.
