Product Description

The Snowcap bean is one of the most beautiful of all beans with its tan color and a snowcap of white along the side and random spots of burgundy speckling overall. It is an oddball and thought to have been found in the crop of some other bean. It retains its markings after cooking and is excellent for soups.

It has a creamy texture making it ideal for chowder such as “Snow Cap Chowder.”

  1. Favorite bean 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 6th 2019

    This is hands down my favorite bean. I started using them maybe 20 years ago when I could buy them at a local mill. A few years ago they stopped carrying all the heritage beans I had loved using so I got online and found Elegant Beans. I am so glad they continue to offer this bean for sale. I have a recipe I devised using sage sausage, onion, garlic and kale with a creamy base. It is my comfort food. The beans are so smooth and sweet. I just love using them. Thank you Elegant Beans.

  2. My favorite bean 5 Star Review

    This bean is what brought me to Elegant Beans. I had used it for years as the basis for a chowder recipe I made. Then the place I bought them stopped carrying all the heirloom beans. The beans are so creamy and delicious. Sometimes I use my immersion blender to smooth out the soup, other times I leave the beans whole. They make delicious soups. The best ever.

    These tasty beans have a lovely, meaty texture and also retain their beautiful coloring after cooking. Truly delicious!
