Yellow Indian Woman Bean
Quantity in Basket: None
Code: YELOB01
Price: $5.95
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds

What a great bean this is! At the farmers markets, this is the bean that seems to attract more people than any other. Whether it's the name, the beautiful gold color or small, bullet size, who can say? The good news is that the bean is as delicious as it looks. It's quick growing and unique tasting. I've heard that in some areas they're called Buckeye but for most of us, they'll always be Yellow Indian Woman.

Yellow Indian Woman is incredibly creamy, almost more like a classic black turtle bean than anything else. It's dense without being intense, if that makes sense.

Said to be originally from Montana.

Cook them with a simple mix of aromatic vegetables (celery, carrot, onion, garlic), a little olive oil and a bay leaf for an incredible pot of beans. Use the beans is salads, chilis or even as a spread.

They won't fall apart so you could even use them in classic baked beans if that's your desire.



Beans from Rancho Gordo were selected by the editors and staff of Bon Appetit to receive their coveted Seal of Approval in their Dried Bean category.

I almost hate recommending these because if everyone finds out about them, they might be less available! These are fantastic beans, they have a rich, creamy, meaty texture and hold their shape even after hours of low heat in the oven.
