I’m looking for a recommendations of a variety of beans that are good for drying to be then used over the winter in stews, and soups etc, and where to buy them…preferably via an online seller.
This sort of thing is what we grow
I would definitely second @JaneJones suggestion there, @strudball . We always grow borlotti beans - they are great substitutes for red kidney beans as well as straightforward haricots. Having said that, we usually grow soissons as well but borlottis are a must.
Added: - we are great fans of Rose Elliott’s refried beans recipe and borlottis are stars in that one.
We went to Soissons to try to find the bean garden. Which the woman in the Tourist Office had never heard of, despite it actually being about 2 minutes away as we discovered. Very disappointing, just a very few badly cared for beans so bore no relation to the story of the cathedral surrounded by rampant beans,
Hi, thanks for that suggestion.
Friend and I had a big order from Baumaux including lots of sundries and their excellenf seed growing medium…3x25ltr all with fixed P&P at €7.50 so good value and here in 10 days. I’lll add these to my imminent second order, well recommend them.
