Red Haricot Beans have a superb taste, delicate texture and rich garnet red colour. They're especially good in chillis, bean casseroles and salads.
Or try our canned Red Haricot Beans in Water, cooked and ready to use.
Red haricot beans combine the striking colour of kidney beans with the tenderness of smaller haricot beans and can be used in place of either in any recipe.
Soak overnight, rinse, place in a pan and cover with plenty of cold water. Bring to boil and boil vigourously for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes until tender.
Please note: Like most red beans, Red Haricot Beans contain a natural toxin called lectin. It is essential to cook Red Haricot Beans as above to destroy the toxin and ensure they are safe to eat.
Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.
Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.
Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.

Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.
Our current crop of whole fava beans are the unusually small, round and wonderfully tender Maris Bead variety, bred over 50 years ago at the Plant Breeding Institute on Maris Lane near Cambridge. Whether they're cooked from dry or used canned, we think these are our best ever whole fava.
|These wonderfully wrinkly peas have a distinctively sweet and grassy flavour. Their especially high levels of resistant starch provide excellent nourishment for our gut flora.|
Wrinkled peas are mostly grown for freezing but if not harvested in time they go to waste. Not these ones!
Whole wrinkled peas are superb in stews and curries, with a distinctively sweet, grassy flavour.
We're still experimenting with ways of cooking these peas ourselves but they can be substituted in recipes for other whole peas, especially whole yellow or blue peas. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!
Grown at Great Glemham Farms in Suffolk's Alde Valley.View full product details
