1 lb bag dried cranberry beans
1/2 C pancetta or 4 slices of slab bacon, diced
2 medium yellow onions, diced
1/2 C extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 head of fennel, diced
Salt and pepper, to taste
3/4 C chopped plum tomatoes
6 cloves garlic, roasted

1 sprig rosemary
1 Tbl flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 bay leaf
4 C chicken broth
1 bunch escarole, washed and coarsely chopped

Cranberry beans were one of the first beans to be cultivated by the Incas and Aztecs, as early as 5000 BCE. They have the reversed colouration of pinto beans. Their flavour can be described as sweet, creamy and nutty. This bean is sometimes called the Saluggia, Borlotti, or Roman bean.
