A small creamy sweet oval bean that is best known for its use in Baked Beans!
To cook: Soak overnight in clean cold water. Drain and replace water to cover beans by 5cm. Fast boil for 10 mins. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 45 mins or until tender. Drain and save cooking water as this can be used in recipes requiring liquid.
You can also freeze the beans at this point in some of their cooking liquid.
