Pink beans are similar to pinto beans and Great Northern beans. They are often used in Caribbean, Puerto Rican, and Mexican-American cuisines.
These get darker when cooked. They're often used to make chili.
Bring 10 cups of water to a boil and add 2 cups beans and let boil for 2 to 3 min. Remove from heat, cover and set aside for 1-4 hours. Drain and for boiled beans add to a large sauce pan cover beans with 1 inch above. Boil beans for 10 min, simmer until tender about 1-2 hours. Add seasonings such as garlic, onion, oregano, parsley or thyme during the cooking time, if desired.
Organic pink beans
To keep dried beans as fresh as possible, store them in food-safe storage containers with tight-fitting lids rather than in the plastic bags. Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
When stored properly, beans can last several years. Even 10+ years if you remove the oxygen from the container!
