Snow Cap Beans
Choose 10 or 60lbs
Snow cap beans are an heirloom variety that are burgundy colored with ivory-white blotches evoking snow-capped mountains. They retain their color when cooked. Their flavor is similar to cannellini beans, but their texture is smoother & firmer.
Store dried snow cap beans in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
RECIPES & TIPS
Snow cap beans are delicious in bean soups, chili, chowders and bean salads.
Before cooking, dried snow cap beans need to be soaked. Soak them in cold water overnight or quick-soak them by putting them in a pot with enough water to cover by a few inches, bringing the water to a boil, then removing the pot from the heat and soaking them for an hour.
After soaking (using either method), drain the water and rinse the beans. Then add several inches of cold water and a pinch of salt. Boil over high heat, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until tender (around 40 minutes). One cup of dry snow cap beans will yield approximately 2 ½ cups once cooked.
