Good Mother Stallard is a family heirloom that has been enjoyed for generations. It is a sweet tasting bean which has a very full rounded nutty taste. This is a meaty bean with a granular texture which is great for soups.
Best Beans Ever!

As a bean aficionado, I have tried many varieties from different parts of the world and Good Mother Stoddard are my absolute favorite. They have a rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. Normally I never eat beans without some salt but I have no problem eating Good Mother Stoddard beans without any salt at all. I never imagined that I could just have beans cooked with water and that they would be delicious. Thank you so much for growing these amazing beans! I'm very grateful that I found your company.
Meaty and sweet

Made up a nice pot of these adding only garlic and bay leaf as directed...salting only near the end. To layer in more flavor after they were cooked, I added a batch of garlicky sautéed rapini and a glug of olive oil. Simply delicious and so nutritious! Looking forward to leftovers and bet they’ll be even better after melding with the seasonings a day or so!
Our favorite bean

Our family favorite

GMS are the best beans. Our family loves them. We cook them simply, just garlic and onions while cooking. The pot liquor is incredible. I often serve them in a bowl as is (ala olla), topped with some finely chopped onions, salt and pepper, chopped fresh tomato if in season. The beans are also excellent in soup. They also freeze well, so cook the whole pound and freeze the extra with some of that heavenly pot liquor as a great, easy start to a future pot of soup.
The best bean Mother Nauture developed!

This bean cooks up so well. It never seems to get mushy or break down. I cooked a 1lb. package with some garlic and ham hock. We then eat them warm with some olive oil and red wine vinegar on them. So wonderful!

Just finished a small bowl of Good Mother Stallards' that have been in the oven in a clay pot. More folks should try this variety and clay cooking in general. Never soaked and kept at 250-300 until done. Wonderful texture, skins stayed on...perfect in every way. The taste is beyond my expectation, and frankly that was high. Try these...you won't be disappointed. Thanks Elegant Beans for a great experience.

These are hands down my family's favorite beans. Because the pot liquor is so rich, they need very little dressing up. I make a simple soup with sautéed onions, garlic, celery, and carrots, sometimes adding chopped-up ham.
