Description

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. 

Scarlet Runners are one of the oldest cultivated foods of the New World and come to Rancho Gordo from the heart of Oaxaca. The beans are a bit smaller and less starchy than Christmas Lima beans. These beans can be used in a variety of ways including vegetarian dishes and meaty stews. It is best to soak these beans 6 to 8 hours before cooking.
