Did You Know...
Navy beans are actually one variety of kidney bean. These small white beans are so named because they’ve been a standard food of the U.S. Navy since the mid-1800s.
Special Touch
Why not serve these savory, slightly sweet beans in hollowed-out round dinner rolls? When the beans are gone, you’ll have a sauce-soaked piece of bread to enjoy!
