Small Red Beans
Small Red Beans are small, plump, oval-shaped red beans that resemble kidney beans, but are smaller and more rounded. They have a mild flavor and creamy texture that performs well on its own or as a component among other ingredients.
Sort carefully and rinse thoroughly. 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 to 90 minutes, until tender. This bean produces foam when boiling, so skim the water regularly.
Storage & handling
Store in a cool, dry place.
