Bean, Black, Regional

Our Organic Black Beans are grown and cleaned on a farm located in Pleasant Grove, California. Pleasant Grove Farms is a second generation family farm that operates on 3,000 acres of certified organic land. They conduct on-farm research with the goal of improving yields while reducing inputs and costs associated with growing organic food.

A favorite in South and Central American, Caribbean, and American Southwest cuisine, black turtle beans have a mild, sweet, earthy flavor that combine well with assertive seasonings like chili peppers and cumin.

A one-cup serving of black beans has about 15 grams of protein (equivalent to the amount in 2 ounces of chicken or salmon) and 15 grams of fiber. Black beans are a good source of copper, manganese, vitamin B1, phosphorus, protein, magnesium, and iron.

Ideal in spicy soups, stews, enchiladas, tortillas, and casseroles.

To cook the beans, soak beans overnight, then rinse, add three cups of fresh water or unsalted broth for each cup of dried beans. (The liquid should be about one to two inches above the top of the beans.) Bring the beans to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, partially covering the pot. If any foam develops, skim it off during the simmering process. Black beans generally take about one and one-half hours to become tender.
