Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, the Ayocote family was one of the first cultivated crops of the New World. They are grown all over central and northern Mexico but seem to have lost favor with Mexicans except in specific indigenous communities. If you plant them, you can enjoy the flowers, eat the pods as a broad bean, or shell them fresh for shelling beans, but the best way to enjoy them is dried so you can experience their fully developed flavor. 

Simmer the beans on the stovetop or bake them in the oven with simple aromatics like a bay leaf and garlic; cook until they have a creamy texture.

    These beans have a perfect creamy texture when cooked. I soaked mine overnight and then cooked them on the stove top with aromatics for around a hour and they came out perfect!
