Ayocote Morado beans are not beans you find everyday and I know because I look for unique things -everyday.
Back in the back of a little store on a side street in an obscure part of Queens I found a bin and in this bin were beans and those beans were these beans so I picked some up.
Ayocote Morado beans are supposed to be super tasty when cooked with a lot of garlic and wild mushrooms - does that not cry out for me?
I didnt know this little fact about garlic and mushrooms until I got them home and did a little research; I was struck by their size (like a big kidney bean) and their obviously purple (morado in spanish) color. I am showing them with a variety of background colors so that you can see that their purple color never fails. I am going to cook them up and let you know.
