Alce Nero organic dried Borlotti beans are sourced from Italian farms. The Borlotti variety is a plant with fruit featuring a slightly yellow pod which is streaked with red. The seeds, when raw, are ivory in colour with burgundy-brown mottling. They take on a dark colour when cooked and their interior becomes floury. We recommend soaking dried Borlotti beans in cold water for 8 hours, taking care to change the water at least once. To help soften the skin, add salt after cooking. Meanwhile, use bay leaves or wild fennel when cooking to avoid bloating. Beans are a balanced food source, free from cholesterol and particularly rich in protein.
