    This was yummy! I was pleasantly surprised to discover that cranberry beans are very creamy. Found the beans at the Carrboro Farmers Market in NC. The pesto you make to mix with the beans was very tasty. A nice twist on pesto that I'll probably make again to use on pasta, sandwiches, etc.

    A great way to use the dried cranberry beans I got in my CSA last winter! Forgot to buy basil -- so I used more parsley plus a little bit of fresh dill that needed using up -- and realized too late I didn't have walnuts, but pecans worked just fine. I think it'll be even better today after the flavors meld even more overnight.
