Believe it or not, I was 'forced' to know Borlotti beans when my weekly vegetable delivery was offered with a packet of them. To me, they look like a size larger than Edamane, except the shell is tan-colored streaks with magenta or maroon. Same goes for the beans, they are oval shaped of hazel-nut colored that are splashed with magenta.
Borlotti Beans or Cranberry Beans
Also know as Roman bean or Cranberry bean, the next question that jumped out from my mind was "What I shall I do with a bag of Borlotti beans?"Googling only helped after Mag told me its name. Aha, looks like I have a long list of Borlotti beans recipe to experiment!

A few friends shared that they are good to be made soup hence I decided to give it a try.High in calcium and iron, looks like I have to cook Borlotti beans more often for young ones (me included ;)! Taste wise, not far differs from groundnut hence they are good to be made into soup with chicken or pork.
