Rancho Gordo Alubia Blanca Beans - 16oz

Country of Origin: Mexico

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. He has excelled in finding small farms where farmers are still growing heirloom, near forgotten varieties since common varieties such as kidney, limas and great northerns took over the U.S. market. The freshness of Rancho Gordo beans offers insight into the pure and individual flavors hidden within each type of bean.

The Alubia blanca is a small white bean from Mexico that is used in all around cooking from bean salads, to soups to dip or even traditional Boston baked beans. The skin on this bean is thin but still holds its shape well with prolonged cooking. This is a limited edition bean and part of the Rancho Gordo XOXOC project which helps support farmers interested in continuing to grow indigenous beans.
