ANASAZI BEANS

This ancient heirloom bean has dramatic red and white markings. It has a soft creamy texture and is considered an unusually tasty baking bean. Great with chili con carne.

The Anasazi were Indians who lived in the four corners of Colorado - Utah - Arizona - and New Mexico, dating back to 130 A.D. They are best identified with their substantial architectural achievements known today as "cliff dwellings."
Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenweep, Canyon de Chelly and many other dwellings which dot the arid countryside, represents these structures.
"Anasazi" is a Navajo word best translated as "the ancient ones.”

Anasazi Beans where one of the few cultivated crops grown by the Anasazi. They were found in the ruins by settlers to the Four Corners area in the early 1900's. This bean is considered an unusually tasty baking bean, very scrumptious with ham and flavorful in Mexican dishes. This sweeter and mealier bean will allow many culinary delights.

Certain carbohydrates are the primarilly source of flatulence in dry beans.  The Anasazi bean contains less than 25% of these carbohydrates.
