Gigantes (Giant Beans) from Feneos (17.5 oz)



Dikotylon's "Gigantes Feneou" are produced by local farmers in Feneos, a high mountain valley nestled between the peaks of Mt. Helmos and Mt. Zyria at an elevation of 2,000 feet, in the northern Peloponnese. The area is renowned for its bean cultivation. Gigantes Feneou retain their unique characteristics through cultivation techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation. They are entirely hand farmed and hand processed.  The exclusive selection of seeds, by the farmers themselves, for sowing the following year preserves the purity of these unique beans. 

  • Ingredients: 100% Gigantes beans of Feneos

Not bad, but a little disappointing. They seemed fresh enough and cooked in a reasonable time. However, they were not as creamy as I had hoped, tasted a little dry. This was true even after I poached them in olive oil for 45 minutes, long enough for others white beans to be smooth as silk.

Sublime, creamy, buttery, and the best example of Gigantes I have used. Gorgeous smooth and full without a blemish, is what they looked like in the package, and tasted even better once cooked.

Giant flavor!

I've purchased these beans elsewhere, and the quality of these is much superior! They have a beautiful, creamy texture and delicious flavor.
