How to Use

Dried black turtle beans will double in size when cooked. To prepare the beans soak 1 cup beans in 4 cups of water for 12 hours. Drain and rinse beans, place in saucepan with 3 cups of cold water and bring to the boil. Do not add salt at this stage of cooking, as this may make beans tough. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 1 - 2 hours (or until soft).Drain and use, or refrigerate for up to 2 days. Black beans can be added to salads, warming soups and hotpots, or are delicious in vegetarian burgers. Smashed beans are great in dips; mix with pureed beetroot, sumac spice or chilli. A star in many spicy dishes - use these small turtle beans as a tasty filling for burritos and tacos, or make classic re-fried chilli beans.
