Additional Information:
It is the most popular bean in the United States and northwestern Mexico,and is most often eaten whole (sometimes in broth), or mashed and then refried. Either way, it is a common filling for burritos in Mexican cuisine. Additionally, the young immature pods may be harvested and cooked as green pinto beans.

In Spanish, they are called frijol pinto [fri.ˈxol ˈpin.to], literally “speckled bean”, but, in South America, it is known as the poroto frutilla, literally “strawberry bean”. In Portuguese, the Brazilian name is feijão carioca (literally “carioca bean”; contrary to popular belief, the beans were not named after Rio de Janeiro, but after a pig breed that has the same colour as the legume), which differs from the name in Portugal: feijão catarino. There are a number of different varieties of pinto bean, notably some originating from Northern Spain, where an annual fair is dedicated to the bean.

Their distinctive flavour is good in salads, soups, pates &  other savoury dishes. Soak 8-12hrs. Cook 80 mins (Pressure cook 20mins).

Storage Advice:
Dried beans last for years, However the older they are the longer they will take to cook. Canned beans last for years and fresh beans last about a week.

You can help dried and canned beans stay fresh longer by storing them in a cool, dark place at a temperature under 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fresh beans are best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Once cooked, beans should be stored in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants and then placed in the fridge. Always place leftover product into a proper airtight container before storing in the fridge. For a long-term option, you can freeze your beans while preserving their taste if you use a freezer safe container.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
