Spilling the Beans…

Posted on January 31 2014

After doing a little traveling we stumbled upon this bean farm in Twin Falls, Idaho. Zürsun Idaho Heirloom Beans is the original U.S. company to provide authentic heirloom beans and unique legumes worldwide. Today there are over 10,000 known varieties of heirloom beans and legumes! Here at SOS Chefs we have a great variety of domestically grown beans, as well as beans from all over Europe and South America for you to try. Just to name one, the ‘Scarlet Runner’ is named after the plant’s glowing red flowers. The dried bean is purple with black spotting, it definitely stands out from the crowd. It has a dense texture and nutty flavor and is usually enjoyed best with a simple touch of butter, garlic and fresh herbs.
