Bob's Red Mill Cranberry Beans -- 27 oz

Premium Quality. Excellent Source of Protein and Fiber. Friend of the Heart. All Natural. Kosher. Much sweeter and more delicate in taste than common pintos or kidney beans these beautiful Cranberry Beans are popular in Italian cuisine and often known as "borlotti" beans. They have a smooth texture and mild nutty flavor. Perfect for salads soups stews and bean spreads. Excellent source of dietary fiber protein and iron.  . Cranberry Beans are pretty light-colored beans with cranberry colored markings. Use as you would pinto beans in chili or for baked beans.

Yummy Beans!
 January 23, 2014
"I am trying to get away from BPA-lined cans, so I've started using dried beans more. These beans hold their shape well when cooked, and they have a mild but distinct flavor. I soak them overnight, rinse them well, and then my husband doesn't have so much of the... aftermath of beans. ;)"

In the South We Call these October Beans
 December 26, 2013
"In the south cranberry beans are also known as October beans. They are great planted in the garden. Some mix October beans in with green beans to have a more "beany" texture to the green beans.
When we have fresh October beans (cranberry beans) I can them in pint jars along with a little salt and cumin. They are better than pinto beans in my opinion.
Dried cranberry (October) beans are another option in the winter when one can't buy fresh beans.
Dried beans are also great served with home- canned tomatoes over the beans. Cook the beans, open up a can of home-canned tomatoes and serve over top of the beans. You might want to put a pinch of sugar in the tomatoes.
Serve with cornbread! Yum!"

Good full beans.

"The beans are full with very few broken pieces unlike most raw beans that you buy in the grocery stores. Love Bob's products! And Vitacost has the best prices & service."

Yummy Cranberry Beans
 August 28, 2013
"The first time I purchased cranberry beans was at an Amish store in central Ohio, I really liked them!! I have purchased 2 more bags from Vitacost since then. I love the soft texture, they cook up faster than some other types such as pinto or black beans. They are a wonderful change of pace and I recommend them highly. They are also a fun topic of conversation because I have not met anyone yet who has heard of cranberry beans!!"

Delicious alternative to regular pinto beans!
 April 29, 2013
"These beans are like pintos, but plumper and sweeter. They are also a bit more expensive, but worth the cost. One tip to quicker cooking: soak them overnight in one or two teaspoonfuls of baking soda, then throw away the soaking water and rinse well. The beans will cook much more quickly when you add bicarbonate of soda. Great product, and worth a try!"

Tasty as a stew
 October 5, 2012
"Dr. Oz recommended these beans so I decided to give it a try.
Very tasty. Soak overnight. Next day I cook them in the
pressure cooker with chicken/vegetables. Family enjoyed it
too. Recipe at the back of the package.
