Haricot Tarbais Dry 17.6 oz
Bibliographical research has identified the ancestor of corn in Mexico, where it was grown by the Aztecs and already associated with the haricot and the pumpkin. The Mexicans called the reddish, kidney-shaped seed “ayacolt”, the origin of our word “haricot”.
One of the first products imported from South America in the 16th century, the haricot arrived in Europe in the hold of Christopher COLUMBUS’ ship. An interesting note is that when Catherine de’ Medici, the future wife of Henry II of France, disembarked at Marseilles in 1553, she produced from her trousseau a bag of “fagioli”, the beans later known as “haricots”.
Continue cooking on a low heat for about 1 hour (30 min. in the pressure cooker). Add salt halfway through cooking time.
