Bird Egg Beans

elaineathon | Oct 6, 2008 06:47 AM

I bought a gorgeous handful of bright pink (magenta?) speckled beans at the farmer's market yesterday. The sign said they are called "bird egg beans" but the only reference I found to them on the Internet is at this blog: http://oneblockwest.blogspot.com/2008.... Some site also suggest the bird egg bean may be synonymous with the borlotti bean.

Has anyone else heard of this bean? Does anyone know what I can do with them? I only bought a large fistful to experiment with so ideally I'd like to have them in a rather plain preparation so I can taste the true flavor of the beans. Thanks!
