"Midnight is a true black turtle bean with a rich, traditional black bean flavor and texture. Midnight beans have a light, thin skin that allows its flavors to mix with your aromatics and create a delicious bean broth. The beans and their broth are great with simple rice. The liquid coats each kernel of rice, adding flavor, protein and pizzazz. But don't forget to strain them for a salad with your favorite greens and use any leftover broth as a base for soup! A classic, versatile, essential black turtle bean. It holds its shape through lots of cooking yet retains its famous creamy interior."
Suggestions: Salads, chili, refried beans, dips, soups, pot beans, Brazilian feijoada.
These are incredibly fresh so little, if any, soaking is required. You can retain the black color better by not soaking. If you must soak, try using the soaking water while cooking.
Latin name: Phaseolus vulgaris
Country of production: USA
I fell in love with Rancho Gordo beans when I was gifted several bags years ago. When we decided to broaden the Herbivore Pantry, I immediately requested information from Rancho Gordo. I hope you love these as much as I do! - Michelle
