Wow, those are intense! Did you buy any and cook them? Are the enclosed beans a pinkish hue?

Beautiful! Are those the same as cranberry beans? We don't usually see those here until late August.

danielle,
No, I didn't buy any this week.
The beans inside are beautiful pink and white like the outside, but they can lose their color once they're cooked.

Yes, they are one and the same. Do you cook with them? If so, what is your favorite recipe?
