Organic 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.
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 the 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 chillies, 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!
