And if you toss them on the table during dinner prep, they’re a great way to reduce pre-meal whining too.

With the yearning for sunshine and warmth may come a yearning for springtime vegetables. While we're not quite at the point where winter and roots are going away (regardless of what the occasional spring-like day might suggest), there is still plenty of good eating to be had from these relatively low carbon-footprint local vegetables.

Beans, beans, the musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you.....!!

Posted by Boston Organics on Feb 7, 2022 9:20:41 AM

Beans are high in protein making them a popular food for vegetarian and vegan diets. But you don't have to be a herbivore to enjoy these nutrient rich legumes that lend themselves to all kinds of wonderful dishes.  And we've got a terrific new local source (ME) for heirloom beans, Baer's Best.

For the past three decades Charley and Carol Baer have been specializing in heirloom bean varieties that have grown here in the Northeast since colonial days. Many years ago beans were a New England staple and some local people may remember the traditional Saturday night meal of baked beans and brown bread. Now many people are rediscovering the benefits and pleasures of having beans as a regular part of their diet and finding new ways to enjoy these specialty beans.
