Organic Colibri Beans
Shelling beans are eaten for the edible seeds inside and have pods that must be removed before the bean can be cooked or dried. You can find some of these varietals in their fresh state at the farmers market during the late summer and fall. When purchased fresh, shelling beans take only minutes to cook and do not require an overnight soak. They require very little preparation to taste delicious and are perfect on their own in a simple salad or as a meaty topper to a pasta dish.
