Sangre De Toro

Origin: Bull's Blood is the literal translation of this bean's title. This bean's tradition is traced to the South American region. The Tierra Vegetable seed stock is said to have come from Peru, according to the San Francisco customer who passed a small handful of beans on to Lee a few years ago.

Cooking: This is a large, long and deep red bean. Sangre de Toro is certain to make a robust red bean base for salads, soups, chilis, etc... According to Rancho Gordo (who also grows this bean), the bean liquid (also called pot liquor) that is produced a a result of cooking this bean is prized by those in Mexico and elsewhere who treasure this bean as a part of their culinary heritage.
