Organic Cannellini Beans
Best Before: June 2021
Batch Number: 805227
Ingredients: Organic Dried Cannellini Beans (100%)
Add to vegetable soups; or stew with sage, garlic and tomatoes for a winter casserole.
When cooked, they have a fluffy texture and a slightly nutty, mild flavour.
How to prepare:
- Soak the beans in lots of cold water for a minimum of 5 hours (they'll expand, so make sure your bowl is big).
- Drain and rinse, then put them in a large pan, cover with 5cm of cold water, bring to the boil, scoop off any foam, then boil for a further 10 minutes.
- Scoop the foam off again, then add just a little salt (too much salt before they're cooked will harden the skin, as will anything acidic like lemon juice or tomatoes), and simmer gently with the pan lid half on for 1 to 1½ hours, until tender.
- Keep an eye on the water level, and add more if necessary.
