Spicy Tradition

Seasoned beans have interesting history in America. Native Americans domesticated beans over five thousand years ago. Colonial New Englanders' favorite were flavored navy beans. By the late 1800s baked navy beans in cans became popular and in 1877 a grocery store advertised canned baked beans as 'fancy groceries.' The first large producer of canned baked beans was Boston’s Henry Mayo & Co. In the summer of 1878 their beans caused a sensation when they debuted at the World’s Fair in Paris.

Canned baked beans weren’t the first prepared seasoned beans in America. Indians didn't eat them plain. Texas cowboys made what they called 'chili bricks' in the 1800s with hot spices that prevented spoilage. The bricks were easily carried and were boiled at trail camps. The first chili recipe with local peppers was published in West Texas around the turn of the century.

Traditional Caribbean dishes featured beans. Richly seasoned, the spicy island recipes gradually incorporated flavors of the transplants from the cultures of Africa, England, Spain, France, the Netherlands, and India.

EDEN Organic Seasoned Beans deliver classic traditions today, table ready from the pantry in just minutes.

Five Varieties

EDEN Organic Seasoned Beans come in five varieties. Baked Beans w/ Sorghum and Mustard present a classic New England recipe with organic sorghum. Caribbean Black Beans are black turtle beans with the flavors of island spices. Chili Beans w/ Jalapeno and Red Pepper are dark red kidney beans in spicy tomato sauce. These classic chili bean are a great side, or a starter for homemade chili. Pinto beans are so-called from the Spanish word for ‘painted.’ Pinto beans have splashes of red that create the pink when cooked. EDEN Spicy Pinto Beans, perfectly cooked, have just the right amount of lively spices. Lentils w/ Onion and Bay Leaf are green lentils in savory sauce. They make enticing soup with the aroma of bay, just add some water. For the adventurous, please try the Eden Organic Seasoned Bean sampler. It includes all five.
