The Camellia Brand signature bean – creamy, hearty, and beloved in New Orleans.
The Camellia Brand signature bean – creamy, hearty, and beloved in New Orleans and across America’s Gulf Coast. It’s an old New Orleans tradition to cook up Red Beans and Rice every Monday, which was historically the laundry day. Simmer or slow-cook them to creamy perfection with the holy trinity of vegetables and add ham hocks and other seasoning meats if you like. Plate them as is or with smoked sausage, fried chicken, or a pan-fried pork chop on the side. Like all of our beans, Camellia’s Red Kidneys are non-GMO, gluten-free, and meet the “Hayward Standard” – the name our growers gave our bean quality standard – which exceeds the top USDA requirements. Try some today – we think you’ll taste the difference.
Lucius Hamilton Hayward, founded L.H. Hayward and Company in 1923 to sell red beans in the famous old French Quarter Market in New Orleans, and while they’ve expanded to offer their beans, peas, and lentils to the world, what they’re most proud of is their commitment to make every bag their best.
