Ayocote Blanco Bean

Regular price $ 7.25

1 Lb Bag

A versatile Mexico-grown, mid-sized white bean that is rich and creamy yet holds its shape through long cooking.

A dense, rich bean with a thicker skin. When fully cooked, it has a creamy and starchy consistency with a mild potato-like flavor. 

Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, the Ayocote family was one of the first cultivated crops of the Americas. They are grown all over central and northern Mexico, but tend to be more popular in indigenous communities.

"Rancho Gordo sells the most flavorful, deeply savory beans I’ve ever tasted—beans that negate the need for the ham hock that beans are so often paired with. I can’t recommend them highly enough as a source for purchasing beans, among other things."
