Lina Sisco's Bird Egg

Lina Sisco was one of the original founders of the Seed Savers Exchange and in 1975 she included this adorable little speckled bean in the catalog of seeds. The story goes that Lina obtained the seed from her Grandmother who brought it by covered wagon to Missouri in the 1800s. They really do resemble tiny little birds eggs and you'll find them so beautiful it will be tempting to just leave them in a glass jar on the shelf as decoration! If you can muster up the will to cook these little beauties though you'll be treated to a flavorful and aromatic bean that makes excellent soups.
