People often are offering me their beans to sell as a Rancho Gordo product. It's almost always a mistake but I did get a hold of a small quantity of these huge Limas, from Peru, home of the orginal Lima bean. I was dubious at first but I made them for friends and we all went a little giddy over them. Despite being Limas, they're creamy and rich and when cooked with just olive oil, onion and garlic, they're almost buttery. Did I mention how huge they are?
The beans on the right are the raw beans and the left shows how large they get when cooked.
We're selling these only online as they're not a locally grown product and it's inappropriate to sell them at the farmers market.
