Everyone knows the story of Jack and the Beanstalk however few people know about the Good Mother Stallard Bean! Glenn Drowns reintroduced this heirloom variety and has brought excitement to cooking with legumes. The pod is a buttercream color and inside rests 3 to 4 beans. The Good Mother Stallard beans are a deep maroon color with splashes of white. The beautiful legume offers a rich, earthy flavor when standing on its own. The thick skin holds the bean’s football shape and unique markings after being cooked. Good Mother Stallard is dense and nutty with a creamy texture. Chefs highly recommend this variety for the hearty pot liquor. We found this tasty bean at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market from Two Peas Farms. This meaty bean is grown in the Central Valley’s rich soil and every bean is hand-picked off the pole. You will taste the difference!
