USA organic family great northern beans soaked overnight and thoroughly cooked with zero chemical additives at Eden’s certified organic, kosher cannery. A mild and super versatile white bean, it’s key to the classic French dish cassoulet. Great northern beans are the seeds in the common green bean pod, fully matured and dried. The medium, white, oval bean reached the USA about 300 years ago from Europe, but it was first brought from South America to Europe. EDEN Great Northern Beans are a heritage New World variety. Use them instead of navy beans for baked beans, in dips and sandwich spreads. They are extra versatile and take on the flavors of what they are cooked with. No salt added. Packed in BPA, BPS, and phthalate free cans since the 90s.
