Black Calypso Beans
The Black Calypso Bean is a bi-colored member of the legume family, offering nutrient density, mild flavor and a creamy texture that performs well on its own or as a component among other ingredients.
Rinse thoroughly and soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot, covered with fresh water. Bring water to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 60-90 minutes, until tender. This bean produces foam when boiling, so skim the water regularly.
Storage & handling
Store in a cool, dry place.
Our Black Calypso beans have a mild, creamy texture with an almost potato-like flavor. Here they are served with fragrant Basmati rice and sweet hunks of pineapple, making for a filling and flavorful meal.
