Cranberry Bean - 珍珠豆

Shell beans, or "shellouts," are other names for Cranberry Beans. These beans have a nutty flavor and creamy texture. It's rounded with red specks, which disappear on cooking and available fresh or dried. These beans are a favorite in northern Italy and Spain. In Singapore, cranberry beans are known as "Pearl Beans,珍珠豆", which is a literal translation from its Chinese name and they are sold fresh in their pods in most vegetable stalls. So next time when you happened to see these beautiful beans do buy some back and make soup... it really taste wonderful.Posted by Picasa
