Cannellini beans (aka white kidney beans, fazolia beans) are creamy, smooth, and nutty beans originally from Argentina and now extremely popular in Italian food. Their slightly tough skin means they hold their shape extremely well during the cooking process.
Store dried cannellini beans in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
RECIPES & TIPS
Cannellini beans can be used in soups (particularly minestrone), stews, salads & pasta dishes. They’re the white bean of choice in Italian cuisine, but can be used in dishes from around the world.
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.
