Heirloom Black Beans

Heirloom Black Beans



These heirloom black beans from Oaxaca are the most flavorful we’ve ever tried. Grown alongside corn and squash, they are an integral piece to the milpa tradition, one of the world’s oldest and most sustainable agricultural systems. By growing these three crops together, farmers are able to maintain the overall health of their soil to produce an abundance of deeply flavorful and nutritionally holistic crops.

We recommend cooking these beans with a few cloves of garlic, some white onion and a sprig or two of epazote or avocado leaf. They pair perfectly with roasted pumpkin and Masienda heirloom corn tortillas.

    Made a batch of these in my pressure cooker with garlic, onions, an orange, Worcestershire, pepper and salt. Finished with a little fresh parsley and cilantro & a little vinegar.
