Dried beans are simply mature beans that are dried and then removed from their pod. An excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, and complex carbohydrates, legumes are flavorful and nutritionally dense.
Kidney, navy, pinto, black, and Great Northern are just a few varieties that are available at the farmers' market.
These delicious, bite-sized morsels are a healthy complement to any meal. You'll find them freshly gathered in bulk and pre-packaged at your farmers' market.

When buying bulk dried black beans, buy only as much as you will use in a month. Packaged, dried beans should contain no broken beans and should be in tightly sealed packages. Avoid any shriveled or broken beans.
Store in a sealed container for up to a year. Place the container in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
