Mogette de Vendee Beans

€2,90 EUR

Beans that are an essential in the french cassoulet

Mogette de Vendée beans, French Heirloom from the 16th Century, are white beans produced in the Vendée region in France. When dry, the beans have a delicate skin with accentuated veins, which melts in the mouth once cooked with their flesh becoming soft and creamy. They taste slightly salty and sweet with hints of chestnuts and leek flavours. Mogette beans are traditionally harvested when the shell is yellow and the beans semi-dry. The beans are a necessary ingredient in the traditional French cassoulet. They can also be used in stews or in salads with tomato and basil.
