I received a beautiful bag of them but not sure to use them :$
I sprinkle them into salads with spinach, cut apples, goat cheese, walnuts and a nice, sweet vinaigrette. Also, you can use them in place of raisins in cookies, etc, for a more tart flavor.
I love them in oatmeal, too.
This question is for dried cranberry beans -- a bean; not dried cranberries -- a fruit. That a a different question, which you given a good answer to!
HalfPint is a trusted home cook.
Maybe make a hummus with the beans, http://www.theparsleythief...
If you like BBQ Beans, I've had and made these beans from Blue Smoke in NYC, http://nymag.com/listings...
Also, other baked goods, such a hot cross buns: http://www.theculinarylife...
Just made a Pasta e Fagioli with them. Beautiful color in the soup.
Cranberry beans would be cooked like similar dried beans -- pinto, kidney, etc. Soak, drain, add more water and simmer til done. I love using a pressure cooker. I made 2 cups at a time, end up with about 6 cups or more cooked beans. I portion them into 1 cup and 1 1/2 cups in containers, the typical amount in a can of cooked beans. Then you can cook them just like the similar beans, or marinate for salads. Refrigerate what you'll use in a few days, and freeze the rest -- very handy when you need them. Store the dried beans in closed jars or containers to protect them from infestation.
