Also occasionally known as Butter Calypso Beans, this heirloom variety dates from at least the 17th Century.
We put yellow eyed, soldier and Jacobs Cattle together in a bean hole casserole and cooked it for 12 hrs buried in the soil, a traditional Abenaki meal taught to me by Fred Wiseman.   It was an incredible meal and all the beans held their shape and were smoothe and delicious.

Grown on Le Noyau’s farm
