Why are Cassoulet Beans so expensive?

BombayUpWithaTwist | Jan 14, 2009 01:19 PM

I was at Surfas in Los Angeles the other day. I wanted to get dried Cannellini beans, but they didn't have any and saw that they had beautiful big Cassoulet beans and decided to get that instead. I also ended up getting Flageolet beans that were about $4 for a 16 oz bag.

When I got to the register the woman asked me if I realized that the Cassoulets were $20 for the 16 oz bag. I said "no, thank you for telling me, I won't get them". She didn't know why they cost so much more than the other beans.

Does anybody else know? I also googled Cassoulet beans and couldn't find any info on them.
