Yellow Eye Beans
Maine Yellow Eye Beans are related to the kidney bean. Maine Yellow Eye Beans are primarily ivory colored with tiny mustard colored markings surrounding the ‘eye’ on the inner seam of the bean.
Yellow Eyes are about 1/2 inch, oval shaped with a mild, almost sweet flavor and mealy texture. The Maine Yellow Eye bean had more of a white color than mustard color like the Stueben Yellow Eye beans. This bean is also referred to as a Dot-Eye Bean and Molasses-Face Bean.
From Green Thumb Farms in Fryeburg, ME.
Cooking Instructions: Before cooking, soak yellow eye beans overnight, then pressure cook for 18 minutes or simmer on top of the stove for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. 1 cup of dried yellow eye beans makes approximately 3 cups cooked.
