A rich Borlotti bean from Piemonte in Italy.
Slightly larger than standard Borlotti (Cranberry beans), Stregoni beans have the cherished nutty and creamy flavor that works in pasta e fagioli, soups, stews, and as a simple pot bean smothered in extra-virgin olive oil, preferably from Piedmont.
Please note: These new-crop beans were grown in Italy, where farmers tend to dry their beans to the extreme. We recommend a good 4-6 hours soaking with this bean and budget some extra time for cooking.
