Named for their resemblance to Appaloosa ponies, these speckled beans are wonderful refried, and pair well with most chilies (try them with chipotle chilies).
Store dried appaloosa beans in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
RECIPES & TIPS
To cook, first soak overnight. Drain the soaked appaloosa beans and boil them in water for three minutes, then cover and simmer until tender. Each cup of dry appaloosa beans becomes 2 ½ cups when cooked.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Prior to cooking, dry Christmas lima beans should be soaked in water for three to eight hours (ideally overnight) and then rinsed.
To cook on the stove top, cover the soaked & rinsed beans with about an inch of water. Bring the water to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot and let cook until the beans are tender. Each cup of raw Christmas lima beans will yield about 2 ¼ cups of cooked beans.
