Alce Nero organic borlotti beans come from Italian cultivations.
The borlotto variety is a plant which produces yellow striped pods containing ivory coloured fruits with burgundy-brown speckles when uncooked. When cooked they darken in colour and have a floury consistency inside. It is best to soak dried borlotti beans for 8-10 hours in cold water and change the water at least once. To ensure a soft skin, only add salt when nearly cooked.
Alce Nero dried borlotti beans are ideal for preparing soups and purées.
