We recommend using #ThompsonsBeans white pea beans or any brand that says product of or grown in Canada. The Andersons Canada , owners of the Thompsons brand, buy beans directly from Ontario farmers, clean them, and package them at their facility in Blenheim.
This year, our farmers grew just over 53,000 acres of white pea beans (aka navy beans). FUN FACT – 90% of these will be exported to the UK to be used in canned baked beans.

#DYK that Romano beans are actually called cranberry beans by the farmers who grown them? They get this name because of their vibrant cranberry coloured markings in their dried state. Once they are cooked/canned the cranberry colour is absorbed into the rest of the seed coat turning the bean a light brown colour.
