BEANS

Beans are one of man's earliest cultivated crops. Though the United States grows about 30 million pounds of beans a year, they are not a native crop. Most varieties originated in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. They were brought into the United States by nomadic tribes who crossed the Bering Strait into Alaska.

There is evidence that the Aztecs in Mexico used beans as a staple food in the 10th century and also that the Incas introduced beans to South America.

In the 1600's on the East Coast, Indians taught the European settlers how to plant corn and beans together so the bean vines could climb the cornstalks for support.

Some of the world's most flavorful and nutritious dry beans are produced in the United States.

The beans are planted from late spring to late summer. As they grow, they are cultivated to remove weeds, conserve soil moisture, and they are irrigated with the precise amount of water and the exact time needed.

When the pods are plump with beans the harvest begins. First, the vines are cut and laid in windows to dry. When the pods are dry, a giant combine harvester rolls down the rows picking up the dry bean plants and shelling the bean seeds from the pods.

The straw goes out the rear where it is scattered over the soil to provide organic matter for next year's crop. The beans go into trucks for hauling to the warehouse.

At the warehouse, the beans are cleaned, sorted and graded for shipment to buyers. Before the beans appear on grocer's shelf, C & F Foods re-cleans them again and packs them into consumer-size packages. Every step in this process is controlled for quality.

PEAS

Green & Yellow Split Peas come from field whole peas, which are harvested when mature, stripped of their husks, split in two, and then dried. These peas are smooth in texture and have a bright green color. Split peas have been around since about 6,000 B.C. and are believed to originate from the Middle East. Widely used in the Mediterranean split peas were eaten by the Greeks and the Romans. They made their way into India and China. In the sixteenth century split peas were highly cultivated in Europe.

Green & Yellow Split Peas are used in split pea soup and cook faster than whole dried peas. A good source of fiber split peas can be used in many soups, salads or as side dishes. Yellow split peas have an earthy flavor.

Green Split Peas: Available in 24 packs of 1 lb.

Yellow Split Peas: Available in 12 packs of 1 lb.

POPCORN

Corn is native to the Americas, developed by the native people of South and North America. Popcorn has been grown for more than 5,000 years and was used by the Incas in their ceremonies. This variety of corn has a very hard hull and about 13 to 14 percent internal moisture. When the kernel is heated the moisture becomes steam, the steam builds until there is enough pressure to make the kernel pop. Plain popped popcorn makes a healthy snack, high in fiber, low in calories, and sodium and sugar and fat free was well.

More popcorn is produced in Nebraska than in any other state.

Popcorn Available in 24 packs of 1 lb.

Yellow Popcorn

RICE

Rice is the most popular grain in the world and is considered the "bread of the world". Today there are more than 5,000 rice varieties. The United States produces about 1.8% of the world's rice, and has produced rice for more than 300 years. Long Grain White Rice is one of the varieties grown in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Texas and Missouri.

Long Grain White Rice has long and slender kernels. The kernels are four times longer than they are wide. Extra Fancy Long Grain White Rice contains maximum 4% broken grains. When cooked long grain white rice separates and it becomes fluffy. Perfect as a side dish, as a bed for sauces, for pilafs, salads, and poultry stuffing.

Like many rice varieties long grain white rice stores well, holds well and is easy to cook. Gluten free and non-allergenic rice is perfect for many types of diets.
