£1.50 £1.20

Black-eye beans are a small, creamy-flavoured bean – notable for the black ‘scar’ where they were joined to the pod. They are used widely in American and African cooking, and are the essential ingredient in a traditional southern-style dish known as Hoppin’ John – a tasty mix of black-eye beans, bacon, seasoning and white rice.
