Yellow Eye Bean

Regular price $ 6.25

1 Lb Bag

Rich, creamy, and mild, this best-seller is delicious without fuss. Essential for New England baked beans but versatile enough for almost any cuisine.

Yellow Eye is a beautiful and lovable bean. You'll find them as at home in a New England pantry, waiting to meet a smoked ham hock, as you would a vegan restaurant in Northern California, paired with seasonal vegetables for a rich, delicious soup.

The cooked beans are soft and melt-in-your-mouth smooth. They are mild enough that they'll take on any of the flavors you use during cooking. 

Traditionally, Yellow Eyes have been the variety of choice for regional baked-bean aficionados. Their russet potato texture is a perfect mix with other baked-bean ingredients.

"For the beans, I go to Rancho Gordo in Napa. They are raising heirloom beans and are fanatical about fresh crop beans and really cool varietals. "
