USA organic family EDEN Cannellini Beans, white kidney beans, are soaked overnight and pressure cooked with no chemical additives at Eden’s certified organic, kosher cannery. Similar to Great Northern beans, but with more durable skin, white kidney beans are native to Argentina and popular in Italy, hence the name ‘Italian’ kidney. White beans and their mild taste are a staple of Mediterranean cuisine. Prized for marinated salads, soup, stew, and with pasta, cannellini beans are the traditional bean of minestrone soup. Cannellinis are a Tuscan delicacy on bread or crostini when sautéed with EDEN Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sage. No salt added. These big cans are for large families, restaurants, and food service. EDEN beans come in BPA, BPS, and phthalate free cans since 1999.
