Tongues of Fire Beans

September 2, 2010 at 10:02 pm Leave a comment

Tongues of Fire (Phaseolus Vulgaris) have a fresh flavor and mild texture. The Tongues of Fire Bean is very popular in Italy, though the seed was found at the tip of South America. For the most part, the pod is inedible. To be safe, if it is in its shell, shell it. Fresh shelling beans require little cooking time, little seasonings and their shelf-life is rather short. They have a fresh flavor and absorbent nature. Combine them with savory spices and aromatic herbs. Use in casseroles or dishes that highlight beans, such as cassoulets, vegetable stews, soups and cold bean salads. See recipe here.
