Best use for Speckled Cranberry bean

By: on 13 June 2017
This bean is best used as what's called a 'shelly', a green-shelled bean, which is a bean that's not fully dry. You need to pick the pod when it begins to turn leathery and the red streaks just begin to turn purple, that's when the seed is ripe and ready for cooking. They go dry fast after that stage so need to be picked often. You'll never find shellys at the market so best to not waste this tasty treat on dry beans that you can probably buy cheaper at the shops. As a green bean it would need to be picked very young because the pod gets tough and stringy pretty quickly. I can't give this product any stars because it seems to always be out of stock so I've never bought it from here.
