From Our Garden Niagara
Pantry Beans - Jacob's Cattle
This open-pollinated heirloom bush bean takes 90 days to mature to a beautiful deep maroon and white speckled bean which resembles the markings of a cow. You can also eat it as a green bean within 60 days.
Jacob's Cattle bean has a fruity, rich, and nutty flavour making it a delicious addition to soups and stews. They hold their shape and flavour well under long cooking times, but can be cooked in less time than your average dried heirloom.
They can also be planted in your garden during the growing season.
~ Heirloom beans are the pride of Start Me Up Niagara’s farm in Vineland. Our "Bean Appetite" label was lovingly designed by one of the participants in the SMUN community. ~
