Description:

Cranberry Beans (Borlotti beans) are related to the Kidney bean and get their name from their mottled cranberry-red and ivory pinto markings. Cranberry Beans are known for their creamy texture with a sweet, mild flavor similar to chestnuts. They are about ½ inch long and are commonly used in Italian soups and stews. They are also referred to as Borlotti, Crab Eye, Roman, Romano, Rosecoco or Saluggia bean. Served with tomatoes, onions and cinnamon or served in a hearty soup they offer a unique and earthy flavor. Interchange them in recipes calling for Borlotti or Saluggia Beans. Similar to their relatives the Pinto and Kidney bean, they will turn pink when cooked.
