I had never heard of Turkey Craw Beans until my old pal Fiddle Dave Pierce fixed me a bunch. These are, to me, like a cross between a half runner and a shelly bean. Nice pods with huge beans in them. They are sort-of bulbous looking but oh so tasty.
These are quite easy to make, I don't really need to give you a recipe per se, but here is a description on how to properly cook the wonderful beans.
Add your beans, you can fill it all way up to the brim, as they will cook down. Now add just enough water to where it comes up just under your beans. Now, bring the beans up to a boil for about 15 - 20 mins. Turn down the heat and cook your beans to cook clowly turning them every once in a while. Cover and cook on low for a bit until tender. Now remove the lid and cook them until all the liquid has cooked off. Oh man are these good. Don't salt them too much as cooking the liquid off concentrates all flavors and the might be too salty.
