Heirloom Jacob's Cattle Beans, Organic


 Product Description

SHILOH FARMS Heirloom Jacob's Cattle Beans make a bold statement in more ways than one! Beautifully dappled in deep burgundy and cranberry hues, they have a nutty, fruity flavor and rich aroma that's sure to impress! 

Sometimes called Trout or Appaloosa Beans, this heirloom variety stands up well to strong seasoning and holds its shape even after long cooking. Little wonder, then, that it has long been a favorite for slow-cooked soups, stews, and casseroles. An excellent source of protein and minerals, the vibrantly colored beans plump when cooked and produce a rich, aromatic broth.

Named because their coloring resembles the hide of spotted cattle, Jacob's Cattle Beans are thought to have been domesticated in the 17th Century by the Passamaquoddy Indians in the region now occupied by Maine and Eastern Canada.

For even more wholesome, healthy goodness, try our entire line of Heirloom Beans: Christmas Lima BeansEuropean Soldier Beans, Orca Beans, and Yellow Eye Beans; and Heirloom Grains: Canahua, Einkorn, Emmer Farro, Greenwheat Freekeh, and Multi-Color Popcorn

To Cook: Sort and rinse. Cover with water and soak overnight. Drain, then bring 2 cups fresh water and 1 cup beans to boil. Reduce and simmer 1-1½ hours, or until tender. Drain and serve.

*Cold soaked and cooked at a very gentle simmer, beans should retain most of their nutrients.

1. An excellent bean for soups, stews, salads, and casseroles.
2. Try one of these traditional dishes: red beans & rice, three bean salad.

3. Pair with pork, garlic, chilis, vinegar, or bitter greens.
4. Substitute anywhere you would use pinto or kidney beans.

  1. I Love These Beans!

    They're beautiful beans, they cook fast, and they taste great in many recipes. Lately, I have made a kind of vegetarian Polish dish with vegetables and sauerkraut.
