Canned Black Beans

I remember seeing a post about a place to buy black beans. The big COOP in Dietlikon has canned black beans (Compal). They also have dried back beans and many other canned and dried beans. I went this weekend and bought about 10 cans of beans

I've found them at Asian stores (New Asia Market at Kalkbreit in Zurich, z.B.) - you can get them also at Indian stores and more expensively at El Maiz in Zurich.

Coop Egerkingen has them. Trouble is you need to get soft water (eg rain, melted snow, I guess you can buy it) to cook them soft.

I'm personally not agree to eat canned products.. Whenever I go to my own country then eat what I want, but always take distance from such frozen products.. These all cause to many diseases..
Frozen peases cause diseases?

If that's the case, I should have died the minute my mum put me on solids.

All the bio shops around Neuchatel also have dried black beans, and I've seen canned black beans at an Indian shop as well.

Also, it's really annoying to have your freezer full of cans.

Re: Canned Black Beans

Some of the Coops in downtown Bern (ex. Ryfflihof) have a Brazilian foods section. There they have a variety of dried beans including black beans. I go there when I need to make feijoada.

Re: Canned Black Beans

The Coop at SihlCity has canned black beans. Dried black beans are easier to find. For example, the medium-large Migros at Lindenplatz has them.

Re: Canned Black Beans

Carmelo's (carmelo-shop.ch) in Zürich sell huge cans of black beans for IIRC something very reasonable like CHF 3.- and dried black beans for around 6.-/kg - probably cheaper than Coop.

I've seen dried black beans at Migros Kreuzplatz (10 minutes from Zurich HB). I imagine Migros City Löwenplatz also has them in stock.

As for canned black beans, I always buy at Barkat in Wiedikon. Cost about 1.25 per can.
