Our Organic Black Beans are grown and cleaned on a farm located in Washington.
A favorite in South and Central American, Caribbean, and American Southwest cuisine, black turtle beans have a mild, sweet, earthy flavor that combine well with assertive seasonings like chili peppers and cumin.
A one-cup serving of black beans has about 15 grams of protein (equivalent to the amount in 2 ounces of chicken or salmon) and 15 grams of fiber. Black beans are a good source of copper, manganese, vitamin B1, phosphorus, protein, magnesium, and iron.
Ideal in spicy soups, stews, enchiladas, tortillas, and casseroles.
To cook the beans, soak beans overnight, then rinse, add three cups of fresh water or unsalted broth for each cup of dried beans. (The liquid should be about one to two inches above the top of the beans.) Bring the beans to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, partially covering the pot. If any foam develops, skim it off during the simmering process. Black beans generally take about one and one-half hours to become tender.

Pick over broken dried beans and rinse with water. Soak in a large bowl or pot with water ensuring that the beans are covered with another 4″ of water. You can’t add enough water here, but you can add too little. Cover and let sit overnight, 8 to 24 hours.
Drain beans from their soaking liquid and give them a quick rinse. Add them to a large pot and cover with another 4″ of water. Bring to a boil, simmer, cover, and then reduce to low heat. Cook until beans are tender, 1 to 1 ½ hours. You can start checking around 45 minutes and let them keep cooking until they are completely tender. Add more water as necessary while they are cooking so that they stay covered in liquid.
Once your beans are nice and tender, season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you prefer. Dress them with some fresh herbs and call it a day!
