Description: Black beans are small (about the size of a pea), kidney-shaped, and have a jet black skin. They have cream coloured flesh, a mild, sweet, earthy taste, and a soft texture. They have a particularly rich and full flavour that is sweet and almost mushroom-like. Black turtle beans are a favourite in Mexico, South America and the Caribbean. Black bean soups, stews and sauces are common Latin American dishes, as are refried beans and black bean salsas.

Directions: Rinse 1 cup beans. Pour into boiling water and cover. Soak overnight, at least 6 hours. Drain and discard soaking water. Add 4 cups fresh water and simmer over low heat until tender, approximately 1-1 1/2 hours.

Storage: When stored in a cool (preferably less than 60˚F) and dry location (less than 65% humidity), shelf life is approximately 2 years.
