Check beans for debris, and rinse thoroughly. In a large pot, sauté aromatic vegetables (onions, garlic, celery, carrot, etc.) in olive oil. Add beans and enough water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a full boil for 10 to 15 minutes. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer, using a lid to help regulate the heat, and gently cook until done, 1 to 3 hours. Salt when the beans start to soften. A pre-soak of 2 to 6 hours will lessen the cooking time.

Steve Sando of Rancho Gordo began selling heirloom beans at farmers markets after experiencing an epiphany with his first harvest of Rio Zape. He now runs an operation in Napa, California satisfying heirloom bean cravings around the country. A key part of his mission is to preserve the precious bean varieties that are indigenous to the Americas. A Rancho Gordo bean is a creamy indulgence that's delicious and good for you. We just love them.
