Flageolet Beans are small, immature kidney beans that are white to very light green in color. Mainly cultivated in France, these coveted beans are very tender and mild, with a delicate, creamy texture. They are known as the "caviar" of the bean world.
Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak overnight in cold water. Place beans in a pot and cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
