Rancho Gordo Flageolet Beans - 16oz
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.
The Flageolet bean variety is a French riff on the new world beans that were discovered in the Americas. This seemingly delicate bean is actually a good option for long-cooking dishes such as the classic cassoulet or other stews.
