Rancho Gordo Midnight Black Beans
A classic, versatile, essential black turtle bean. It holds its shape through lots of cooking yet retains its famous creamy interior. The bean broth can be used as a base for all kinds of soup.
These are incredibly fresh so little, if any, soaking is required. You can retain the black color better by not soaking. If you must soak, try using the soaking water while cooking.
Suggestions: Salads, chili, refried beans, dips, soups, pot beans, Brazilian feijoada.
