Rancho Gordo Christmas Lima Bean - 16oz

Country of Origin: United States
Region: California

Steve Sando began the Rancho Gordo company, based in Napa, with the goal of promoting native new world specialty foods, with a focus on beans. Steve reminds us native foods from the Americas are worthy of celebration. The freshness of Rancho Gordo beans offers insight into the pure and individual flavors hidden within each type of bean. This is a beautifully colored large lima bean originally from Peru. This bean is grown on a California farm working with Rancho Gordo to maintain bean diversity. Christmas Limas are an intriguing variation on the traditional Lima.  In Italy, you'll find them as "Fagioli del Papa", or "Pope's beans". Also known stateside as "Chestnut Lima".

This bean has all the "meat" of limas, but with a chestnut flavor. They're big and bold and can stand up to a chile sauce or curry or simply be enjoyed with a drizzle of olive oil and a few grates of dry goat cheese.
