Kidney Beans


Typically a medium-large dark red, the kidney bean is named after its "kidney" shape. The kidney bean is eaten world-wide from the Americas to Southeast Asia. Use cooked then chilled in salads, or for chili or soups. The white variety kidney beans are referred to as cannellini beans. Kidney beans are not typically found fresh but are widely available canned.

Culinary Quote Of The Day

From James Beard...

The secret of good cooking is, first, having a love of it… If you’re
convinced that cooking is drudgery, you’re never going to be good
at it, and you might as well warm up something frozen.
