  1. PINKS!

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Oct 2020

    These King City Pinks have been a favorite for years! As the premier bean used during the Paso Robles Pioneer Day celebration, which was cancelled this year, I restocked my personal “stash.” Always tasty and well received by all. I highly recommend. They make great gifts also!

  2. King City Pink Beans

    Posted by Fred Sator on 26th Jul 2016

    The King City Pink Beans have a unique flavor unsurpassed by any other bean for most any given bean recipe.

    I remember years ago my aunt fixing a big pot of these beans to go with dinner at the ranch near Hesperia Hall south of Lockwood, CA in the 60s. She would slow cook them all day. The aroma was something to behold. Alas, her recipe was never written down and was lost with her passing.

    I have a copy of the King City Bean Soup recipe (recipe upon request) from Keefer's Inn which was located in King City, CA years ago. They would serve the soup in their restaurant, and in their gift shop they would sell burlap bags of the King City Pinks and include a recipe card of their recipe for the soup. Occasionally my parents, along with us kids, would stop there for a quick meal, which included the bean soup, before proceeding to the ranch for a fun-filled weekend ...or longer. Unfortunately the restaurant changed hands years ago and after that the soup wasn't the same; so I'm told. But I digress.

    My aunt's King City beans tasted great! I liked them so much that she gave me 20 pounds of them many years ago. A word of warning though: Don't wait 30+ years to cook them. They lose their moisture and won't cook up right. (Anyone need 15 pounds of beans for blind baking?)

    So -Buy yourself a 10 pound bag o' beans, cook them up (experiment) anyway you like and enjoy!

    I grew up in the Lockwood Valley close to King City. Like all kids I ate my share of mud & one of the reasons that I love King City Pinks so much is that they taste just like that mud. They taste like the dirt that they grow in & that is a good thing. I now live on an island off of Seattle and I spend more to have them shipped than the actual cost of the beans themselves. Worth every penny. There is usually always a pot in the fridge ready for a snack or a side for a meal. I cook them with onion & salt and nothing else. Healthy, inexpensive (except for the shipping), and delicious.
