About Borlotti-Pinto Beans Organic

Borlotti- pinto beans also known as the cranberry bean, Roman bean, romano bean (not to be confused with the Italian flat bean, a green bean also called “romano bean”), saluggia bean, gadhra bean or rosecoco bean in Italy or cacahuate beans in Mexico.

The high fiber content of borlotti and other beans is known to have a beneficial effect in reducing cholesterol levels, blood pressure and heart disease risk.

The red/pink appearance of the Borlotti-pinto bean with its spotted pattern is very beautiful. Unfortunately the colour disappears after cooking. The bean can then be compared to the brown bean. Even if the legumes lose their vibrant color while cooking, they gain their signature creamy texture.

Storage and shelf life

Store Borlotti beans in a dry and sealable food storage container – we recommend glass. Keep the container in a cool, dry and dark area out of the sun and heat.

Borlotti beans, when properly stored, have a shelf life for up 1 year.

The product is available for delivery and pick up from our store in de Pijp.

How to use

Borlotti beans require some preparation before cooking as most beans.

Place the beans in a large bowl and add enough water to cover the beans by 5cms.

Let stand at room temperature for 6 to 12 hours. Drain the beans, rinse 3 times and drain well again.

Place the beans in a large heavy-bottomed soup pot and add enough fresh bottled spring water to cover the beans by 5cms. Bring to a boil and skim any foam that forms at the surface.
