You ever just buy produce because it's pretty and don't really know what you're supposed to do with it? Well, that's what happened with these cranberry beans. It's not the first time I've done this. The dinosaur egg pluot springs to mind. They do lose their specialness once cooked, but they're tasty with a little basil, olive oil and lemon. Still, I'm thinking some cranberry bean-based craft that preserves their prettiness is in order.
