Win "Heirloom Beans" and Christmas Lima beans

(article, Culinate staff)

Jack had it right all along: Beans are magical. And like Jack, more of us around here are trading cows — or at least beef — for beans. We love the versatility of beans, and the varieties, and we like learning new tricks about how to prepare them deliciously. That's why we're thrilled to learn about Steve Sando's new book, Heirloom Beans. 

[%image ChristmasLimaBeans float=left width=240] Who's Steve Sando? As the proprietor behind Rancho Gordo, Steve is a giant among bean growers, especially heirloom bean growers. Steve knows his beans.

This week we're giving away a copy of Heirloom Beans and a gift pack of Christmas Lima Beans from Rancho Gordo (pictured here), to each of three lucky readers.

To win a copy, all you have to do is leave a comment before noon PST on Monday, December 8, 2008, on any one of the three recipes featured below:
