It's so weird - in the USA you cannot get runner beans for love nor money. At least, not the ones we Brits are used to. In the Southern United States they had what were known as 'white half-runners' which were a bit similar, but the Scarlet Runner - (Phaseolus coccineus, Fabaceae) - is sold as ornamental seeds in the Colonies. We Brits know though - runners are the business. Delicious when sliced and lightly boiled in salted water and served with a Sunday roast. Mm mm mm.
Anyway.... what's the new food?
Name this Food!
