INGREDIENTS: Black Turtle BeansBlack Turtle Beans (100g)
DESCRIPTION: Small dried black beans, slightly elongated in shape. Note this is an unprocessed agricultural product. Therefore at times, parameters such as shape, size, colour and moisture level may vary from typical values. While every endeavour is made to supply a consistent product, in years of extreme weather allowances may have to be made.
BASIC COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:
Black beans, like all dried beans, can be soaked before cooking. This hydration helps to reduce the cooking time, but it does effect nutrient content and flavour adversely. Because they are small, 2-4 hours soaking in cold water should suffice.
To cook, drain the soaking water and add cold water, 1 part beans to 2 or 3 parts cold water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a very slow simmer, so the beans stay in their jackets. Simmer for 2 hours.
