Marrowfat bean

More Information:

The Marrowfat Bean is a rare bush bean that was first popularized in the mid-1800s as a baking bean. Though predominately consumed in casseroles and stews, the Marrowfat has a dual-purpose as it is also used as a fresh shelling bean. The Marrowfat plant produces four to five inch-long pods that are yellowish-white and contain 4 white, egg-shaped beans. The creamy texture of these plump seeds makes them conducive to being pureed. These heirloom beans have a meaty, bacon-like flavor.
