I’d tried the brown variety and wanted to try the black. Pre-soaked and cooked with shallot, oregano, bee balm and ramp butter
Absolutely delicious and satisfying. They leeched their color into the liquid and have a rich, meaty flavor. Didn’t plump up a whole lot, but the chew texture was satisfying. Will definitely buy more!
