Borlotti Beans Are Ready to Harvest

Since this is our first attempt at growing Borlotti Beans, we are delighted to share with you the progress made so far. The outer shells have turned a beautiful shade of red and white, having started off a beautiful shade of green.

The beans remind me of Jack and The Beanstalk, as they continue to reach higher toward the sky. We’ll keep you posted on how these beautiful beans are prepared, as today it is time to harvest and cook these beauties.

I’m thinking… cooked in a soup with farro and veggies… with a drizzle of olive oil and some grilled bread…… this might just be in order soon…hmmm!….or simply braised in olive oil and galic and served as a side dish…
