Product Details

Red Haricot Beans have a superb taste, delicate texture and rich garnet red colour.

They're especially good in chillis, bean casseroles and salads.

Red haricot beans combine the striking colour of kidney beans with the tenderness of smaller haricot beans and can be used in place of either in any recipe.


Cooking instructions

Soak overnight, rinse, place in a pan and cover with plenty of cold water. Bring to boil and boil vigourously for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes until tender.

Please note: Like most red beans, Red Haricot Beans contain a natural toxin called lectin. It is essential to cook Red Haricot Beans as above to destroy the toxin and ensure they are safe to eat.

Notes on Cooking Dried Pulses

Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.

Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.

Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.

About the brand

Nick Saltmarsh, Josiah Meldrum and William Hudson founded Hodmedod in 2012 to supply beans and other products from British farms.

We work with British farms to source a range of top quality ingredients and delicious foods. We’re particularly interested in searching out less well-known foods, like the fava bean – grown in Britain since the Iron Age but now almost forgotten – and black badger peas.

The Great British Beans project

We founded Hodmedod following the successful Great British Beans trial project to stimulate and assess demand for indigenous pulses.

For the trial project we bought a tonne of British-grown split fava beans, packed them up at the kitchen table, and distributed them through community groups and local shops. Each pack contained a postcard with a short questionnaire on the back to collect feedback on the beans.

The response to the beans was overwhelmingly positive, inspiring us to establish Hodmedod to continue and develop supply of British-grown fava beans and other products.

The Great British Beans project was run by Provenance for East Anglia Food Link as part of its Norwich Resilient Food Project, which was developed with Transition Norwich.

From Fava Beans to Quinoa

Our first product was the Fava Bean, grown in Britain since the Iron Age but little eaten in recent centuries. Fava Beans are delicious, nutritious and good for the soil and bees. Split Fava Beans are especially versatile and easy to cook as they don’t need soaking.

Since launching our packs of dried Fava Bean we've been working to search out and develop production of other less well-known foods, like "Black Badger" Carlin Peas and Quinoa from the plains of Essex.

Our Promise

We're committed to providing quality food from British farms that's more sustainably produced. All Hodmedod's pulses and grains are British-grown – and always will be!

We offer a wide range of British beans and peas, as well as some of the first British-grown quinoa.
