This heirloom Snow Cap Bean has ivory-colored "cap of snow" that covers about half of its long reddish-tan body with variegated streaks of deep red. Retains its beautiful markings when cooked. Has a smooth, rich-velvety texture and mildly nutty flavor. Great in soups, salads, side dishes and casseroles.
Basic preparation: Wash, rinse & soak overnight. Add 4 Cups of water / Cup of Bean, bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 60-90 minutes or until tender (add more water as needed). Flavor with butter or oil, salt and any seasoning, cook uncovered over low heat until desired consistency.
Yield: 2 1/2 cups of cooked beans / Cup of dry beans
