Marrow beans (aka Marrowfat beans) are large, egg-shaped heirloom white beans with a creamy texture and a flavor many people consider bacon-esque.
Store dried marrow beans in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
RECIPES & TIPS
Marrow beans can be used as you would other white beans as a side dish or part of a stew, but they particularly excel when pureed into soups, tossed in salads, or baked. Try pureeing them for dips or using them in your bean & bacon soup recipe to amp up the bacon flavor without increasing the fat!
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.
