This class is cancelled due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and in adherence to our government’s health and safety guidelines. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Tiger Eye, Peruano, Orca, Anasazi, and Arikara are just a few of the hundreds of heirloom bean varieties. Healthy, sustainable, and socially responsible, heirloom beans are available in any season. Knowing which beans to pick and how to cook them can make an old bean recipe shine. In this demonstration class, we will explore the myriad types of heirloom beans that are available and learn how to use them in cooking. We will taste a variety of heirlooms and talk about history, flavor, and recipes. Participants will learn how to use heirlooms to dress up baked beans, hummus, soups, and bean dips, and learn new recipes to showcase some of the beautiful varieties available locally. Each participant will make a jar of bean soup to take and cook at home.
