- Instructions (document on the web)
🌱 PLANT INFO:
"Originates from the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada. The Passamaquoddy indigenous people of Maine were said to have given some as a gift to Joseph Clark, the first Caucasian child born in Lubec, Maine in the 1600s. Even through the late 1900s, this bean had a very local distribution limited to the northeastern United States, and particularly Maine, and Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Jacob’s Cattle Bean is described as fruity, rich, and nutty. They are dense and meaty in texture, holding their shape well under long cooking times and maintaining their distinctive flavor even with heavy seasoning. For this reason, the bean is often utilized in soups and stews. This variety of bean is also renowned for its aroma that is unlocked through long cooking. The water used to soak and cook the beans—the ‘pot liquor’—is often utilized and enjoyed along with the cooked bean."
