HEIRLOOM Kidney shaped, white and red speckled dry bean with a larger red eye. It is full-flavored, holds its shape under long cooking, stands up well to plenty of seasoning, and possesses a rich aroma. The name Jacob’s Cattle is the oldest name to be given to this incredible heirloom but it is also known as Trout bean or Appaloosa bean. Hailing from Prince Edward Island, legend has it that it was a gift from Maine’s Passamaquoddy Indians to Joseph Clark, the first white child born in Lubec, Maine.
Pea beans are white in color and usually no larger than a pea in size. They are actually the seeds of the common bean. Pea beans are considered very nutritious because they contain lots of soluble fiber and protein. Additionally, pea beans do not contain much cholesterol or fat, so they tend to be a recommended diet food. These beans probably originated in South America, and they likely became popular throughout the rest of the world around the 15th century.
Kidney beans or red beans resemble the shape of a kidney. Kidney beans are often used in Louisiana Creole cooking or when making chili.
Popular New England heirloom bean passed from generation to generation. Hardy plants produce pods each containing 6 kidney- shaped white beans with the characteristic dark maroon "soldier" on the eye.
Split peas are high in protein and low in fat. Most of the calories come from protein and complex carbohydrates. The split pea is known to be a natural food source that contains some of the highest amounts of fiber. Makes a delicious and nutritious addition to any soup or stew.
Unlike Navy beans, which have a slightly gummy, baby food texture, Yellow Eyes are dense, creamy and delicious. Great Northerns can be plain boring. Replace Navys or Great Northerns with Yellow Eyes and your dish becomes a feast. You can have them on their own or use them with a smoked ham hock. I don't think there's a better bean for Navy Bean Soup. Also excellent for a simple vegetarian soups.
