Jacobs Cattle Gold Bean

This striking gold colored version of Jacob's Cattle Bean is a rich, nutty flavored bean  that is boasts shorter cooking times and less need to soak before cooking. Also called “Cowboy Beans,” the bright gold color with the patches of white make a pretty pot of beans and are super with meats, sauces and in chili or salads.

Jacob's Cattle Bean is an ingredient in the Slow Food Ark of Tastethat originates in the Northeastern US and Canada. The gold is often described as a bit more tender than the traditional maroon colored Jacob’s Cattle bean but both are equally delicious.

Wonderful texture and DELICIOUS

I received a pound of these in my Slow Food Box, and used them to make stewed Mexican beans. I always taste a bean or two after soaking, so I know what I'm dealing with. That test is usually pretty neutral ("yep, it's a bean.") These Jacob's Cattle Gold beans were good even at that point! My whole family loved the dinner; one daughter and my husband actually called out the taste of the beans themselves. That's a first. I'm ordering more and am looking forward to exploring other varieties.
