The Mayocoba Bean (or sometimes “Canary Bean") has a thin skin, a buttery taste and a creamy texture that performs well on its own or as a component among other ingredients.
Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak overnight in cold water. Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes, until tender.
Storage & handling
