Black Turtle Beans are great for soups and stewsAverage Reviews Customer Reviews Write Review
I find these beans so versatile. Here is one of my favourite staples:
Black Turtle Bean Stew. Cook 250g black beans. Put in a pan with 1 diced fried onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 cooked diced sweet potato, 1 diced red pepper, 2 cans tomatoes. Simmer for 10 min. Season with salt & pepper & serve

This salad can use any beans really but we particularly like these beans.
Half a cup of beans, washed and soaked in boiling water overnight.
1 small onion, finely chopped.
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or crushed.
Salt to season after cooking.
Enough water to cover beans for cooking.
2 to 3 tablespoons of Cider vinegar.
1 tablespoon of honey.
1 tablespoon of Olive oil.
Drain the soak water from the beans and cook until tender. Do not add salt as this will harden the skins and they will not cook.
While the beans are cooking mix honey, vinegar, olive oil, garlic and onion in a large bowl. You can adjust the amounts at this point to suit your taste, the mix should be sweet yet vinegary.
Drain the beans and while hot add enough salt to make them tasty.
Add the beans while still warm and mix well, allow to cool completely before serving. This is a very old recipe taught to me by my mother-in-law. The original recipe used green beans or cucumber as the main ingredient, which are also great. This can be jarred and refridgerated, it will keep for a couple of days and is a great accompaniment to any meal.

These beans are especially filling and I use them in most mexican dishes as they can withstand long slow cooking and can hold their shape and colour.
They are not overpowering in flavour and are very adaptable to most cuisine.

Very yummy and filling, taste and cook better if you soak them over night :) Great in bean stirfrys or currys!

Great black beans! They keep for ages and are raw so can be sprouted for optimum nutritional bioavailability.

Great tasting beans for healthy hearty dishes.
Perfect for homemade Chili Con Carne, Spicy Bean Burgers and Black Bean and Sweetcorn Salsa. And don't forget 'Tex Mex' Black Bean Wraps. Yum!

These are really nice for a change when cooking beans, they're healthy, tasty and of course look interesting! I like to use these instead of black eyed beans with fried rice sometimes and everyone love them, they always make great black bean dip with fresh herbs.

These beans are a great size as they last quite a long time and they taste great.
Reviewer's Name: Joel CartwrightGreat little beans - Sun 19th Apr 2015
These beans are cute and very wholesome, a nice, different bean to use - they're slightly sweeter than other beans too and great in South American dishes.
Reviewer's Name: LB- Thu 4th Jun 2015
Sometimes I get confused by the slightly different names black beans are called by (by the manufactures), as some other bean types get named similarly. These are superb good quality beans though which I've enjoyed in many stews and sauces.
