Cranberry beans

Cranberry (“barbounya”) beans are thick, white beans with pink spots which disappear once they cooked. Alternatively, they are called “chantres” or “barbounya” beans. Their name comes from their exterior look, as they have the same colour with the fish called “barbouni” (red mullet). Abroad, they are called cranberries because their spots have the same colour as a cranberry. They can be cooked in many ways, e.g. stew, with meat or as a colourful and fresh salad.
