Cranberry Beans

Cranberry Beans
(Cranberry Beans) The borlotti bean is a variety of the cranberry bean, a common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) first bred in Colombia as the cargamanto. It is also known as Roman bean, and romano bean. The literature also says that the borlotti bean is a variety of the cranberry bean bred in Italy to have a thicker skin. It is used in Italian, Portuguese (Catarino bean), Turkish, and Greek cuisine. The cranberry bean looks similar to the pinto bean, but cranberry beans are larger and have big maroon specks on a creamy white background, more like Great Northern beans. After cooking, however, the specks vanish and the beans take on a more even, darker color. These cranberry beans don't have the creamy white background, but instead have darker color of the cooked beans, and we have not seen anything to explain the difference.

Vegan FlagThe 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!
