These unique beans are a popular ingredient in Italy, where they’re used in soups and pasta.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Borlotti Beans are also called “cranberry beans,” are medium to large in size. Dry, they have a gorgeous dappled white, red and pink color (they’ll remind you of jellybeans). These Casa Rinaldi Borlotti Beans are tinned, and therefore come in a darker color.

These beans are plump, and they have a rich and creamy texture. They’re absolutely delicious, with a nutty sort of sweetness in flavor.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Popular in Italy, Borlotti Beans are very versatile. They’re easy to use and prepare, and can be used in pastas, sides, or salads. They also make a hearty, warming soup, perfect for chilly nights:

  • In a large saucepan on low heat, sautĂ© diced onions and minced garlic in olive oil until the onions are translucent.
  • Add in cumin, dried chili pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and continue to cook for about 5 minutes more.
  • Add in diced tomatoes to the saucepan, and raise the heat slightly, and let cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Add in drained and rinsed Casa Rinaldi Borlotti Beans, a bay leaf, and some water. Turn the heat up to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce the temperature after a few minutes, and let simmer, making sure not to let the beans crumble.
  • Stir in some baby spinach, and season to taste. Remove the bay leaf.
  • Serve and enjoy!

You can also make a great side dish to an entrée by cooking minced garlic on a large skillet with butter and olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add in your choice of herbs, some salt and pepper, plus drained and rinsed Casa Rinaldi Borlotti Beans. Cook for about 2 minutes more, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over it, and serve.

A CONCRETE REMINDER

Casa Rinaldi as a company was birthed from a passion for Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, for which Modena is known. Its name is taken from the 1888 building owned by the Rinaldi family, which served as a vinegar factory. The building stands to this day, and is both an active component, being used in the company’s production, and a metaphorical marker—a reminder of tradition and quality.
