Black-eyed Beans 5KG, Product Of United States
These white beans with their characterized black splotch came to Europe and America from Africa, brought over in the seventeenth century by the slave traders.
The bean thrives in warm climates and has become a favorite food crop in the southern United States, where it is eaten fresh as well as dried. It is often served with pork and corn bread, and is the essential ingredient in a traditional souther dish called Hoppin' John- a mixture of beans, brown rice, bacon and plenty of oil. Black-eyed beans make excellent salads.
