Eat glorious beans

kes : April 4, 2014 7:05 pm : Artisan Foods, Highlights
Rancho Gordo Heirloom Beans / Prepared Hominy (Posole)

The story is this: Steve Sando opened his heirloom bean shop in Napa Valley  after being fed up with using produce from thousands of miles away, or even overseas. So on the subject of beans – instead of general dried beans, what about connecting with the farmers in Mexico and  importing heirloom beans, paying the farmers a fair wage to support their living? And that’s what Steve did.

What’s the big deal – beans in a bag? I could get dried pinto beans from the bin for far less money, you’re thinking. Oh, you could. But the taste would be inferior to Rancho Gordo’s New World beans! Once you eat heirloom beans, your life will have turned upside-down. You’ll eat these beans for the rest of your life.

And we haven’t even gotten to hominy (posole) yet! Posole – a staple in many Mexican stews, sides & main dishes. If you’re thinking that this is tasteless, mushy hominy from the 1950s that your mother had to eat at the dinner table, well – don’t think that. It’s glorious, delicious, tasty dried corn!

You can visit the store in Napa. You can go to the Ferry Building in the city. Or you can stop at Other Avenues – where we have a small selection in our grocery aisle. Ask us – we’ll trot you over to the Rancho Gordo subsection.
