Heirloom Mantequilla Beans (Tlaxcala)
$25.00 – $96.25
The heirloom mantequilla beans are soft, sweet, and delicate beans with a creamy texture: we love them in brothy soups, pairing well with all alliums. We add diced yellow onion and avocado leaves to bring out this bean’s natural sweetness.
When our farmer partner Don Fernando from Tlaxcala asked us if we thought there would be interest in heirloom beans from Tlaxcala, we said “claro que si!”. Fernando uses regenerative and organic agricultural practices by rotating crop plantings between corn and beans. The beans add beneficial nitrogen to the soil, which in his words, acts as an excellent organic fertilizer that “works for free.”
