Cranberry beans, with their soft texture and sweet, chestnut-like flavor, make a delicious addition to salads. To keep the cranberry beans intact and beautiful, let them boil for only a moment at the beginning of cooking and don’t overcook them.
Serve with warm crusty bread for a hearty lunch or light dinner.
A long soak is the best way to ensure even cooking of the beans, but if you’re short on time, you can do a quick soak in lieu of the step above: Put the beans in a large pot with enough cool water to cover by about 3 inches. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for 1 to 2 hours. Drain and rinse.
