Persian Shelling Beans

Persian Shelling beans are available late summer stretching into early winter.
Persion Shelling beans age in the pod as well as out. If you shake the pod and hear a rattle, the beans inside are dry. Fortunately they are still edible and just as easy to harvest.
The Persian Shelling bean is white until 10 days before harvest. It is at this final stage of growth in the pod that it develops its red and white streaked color. Once mature, it has a similar appearance to the Cranberry bean. It is much smaller in size, yet the flavor is much richer.
Persian Shelling beans do not require a lengthy cooking time, due to their small size. This richly flavored bean lends itself well whole in stews and vegetable soups, or pureed with chicken stock in a creamy soup all it's own. Toss in a three bean salad with bacon vinaigrette, stew in a ragout with fresh corn and ripe tomatoes, or mash lightly and use as the base in a crostini.
