Great Northern Beans

(Beans, Great Northern)  Great northern beans are one of the fastest cooking beans.  They usually begin to fall apart after about one hour of cooking time, without pre-soaking.  We usually cook them for about 2 hours.  The actual size of the great northern beans can be seen in the cup to the left.  This variety of bean is great for soups.  See the nutritional charts below for raw and cooked great northern beans.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-37)
