Organic Black Turtle Beans by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in China. Packed in the UK.

Black turtle beans, often known simply as black beans and sometimes as Mexican beans, are a firm favourite in the Americas and the Caribbean, having originally been cultivated at least 7,000 years ago in Central and South America. They’re visually appealing, great-tasting, and hold their shape well when cooked.

PURE, PREMIUM PRODUCT: Hatton Hill Organic’s black turtle beans are grown, harvested and dried in China from only the finest quality crop. Their cream-coloured flesh boasts a superior mild, earthy flavour that’s vaguely evocative of mushrooms, yet which absorbs other flavours well, meaning that these beans work well with herbs, spices and other ingredients you’re likely to want to accentuate in your cooking.

USES: Black turtle beans are as versatile as any other bean variety, but they have some extra culinary star power thanks to their colour, mild flavour and small size. Try them in Caribbean and Latin American black bean soups, add them to salsas and salads, mash them into vegetarian (and non-vegetarian) burger patties, stir them into casseroles and chilies, blend them into tasty dips and sauces, substitute them for pinto beans in Mexican favourites such as burritos, tostadas, quesadillas and tacos, and even sweeten them up a little and use them in desserts and baked treats. The possibilities are practically limitless!

BLACK MAGIC: Hatton Hill Organic’s black turtle beans are a power-food that’s rich in protein as well as a great source of fibre, B vitamins, iron, zinc, phosphorus, complex carbohydrates and calcium.
