Commitment phobia ? 

Warning - dried beans are a little bit more of a commitment to make, but...

...the flavour and texture that properly cooked dried beans bring to your recipes make their canned counterparts feel like junior siblings. Their skins are in tact and firm, and when you bite into them, the insides are smooth and flavourful. Beans that have not been soaked ahead of time will always take longer to cook, but they will still cook.

Soaking beans in the fridge will reduce the time they have to cook drastically. And the texture of the beans will also be at their best, with fewer split-open and burst ones. 

Soak them overnight for 6 to 10 hours. Keep the beans covered with water while soaking. Beans soaked longer than 12 hours can absorb too much water and lose their characteristic texture and flavour. If you plan to cook beans for dinner and  want to use the long-soak method, start soaking in the morning.

Fast Delivery

I was surprised how fast delivery came and the quality was mot compromise either like some naive foods or retailers operates.
I don’t usually leave comments or unnecessary feedback unless I’m happy or extremely unhappy!


Perfectly seasoned peas simmering in the pot on a Sunday is a staple in my Caribbean household and you can never go wrong with these peas. There were barely any peas I had to sort through that didn't pass with flying colours.
