You know when you think about someone and then run into them shortly after? Or how about when you don’t know about something, hear about it for the first time and then it’s everywhere you look? I always wonder, was it there all along? OK I’ll cut to the chase. I like all sorts of beans but had never had adzuki beans or maybe I just didn’t these little red beans by name. I was served adzukis in August along side salmon and they were nutty and delicious. Next thing I know, I’m in Citarella Market a lovely fish market in NYC but hardly bastion of cutting edge foods, and on the shelf are organic adzuki beans.I snagged them and until yesterday admittedly shelved them. Shortly after this adzuki encounter, I see the Hilary’s (veggie burgers extraordinaire) people at Expo East and see these adzuki beauties (above). So in my world, adzukis have arrived although they have been consumed in Asia for centuries, so what do I know?
