Dried, Organic Cannellini beans
Cannellini beans are kidney shaped, creamy-white coloured beans that have a fluffy texture when cooked and a nutty, mild flavour.
Choosing dried beans and preparing them yourself provides a much better flavour and texture than canned.
How to cook dried cannellini beans
To prepare the dried cannellini beans, soak them for a minimum of 5 hours, ensuring you use a large enough bowl as they will swell. Drain and rinse, then pop them into a large pan, cover with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil. Scoop off any foam that rises to the surface and boil for 10 minutes, removing any more foam as they cook. Simmer gently for 1 1/2 hours until tender, topping up the water as necessary.
