How to store
Fresh Coco de Paimpol should be peeled and cooked quickly after purchase. If you can’t eat them on the day you buy them, store the pods in a cool, dry place.
How to eat
Allow about 35 to 40 minutes of cooking time. You can also steam the beans. Do you want to make cream, puree or gratin? Then extend the cooking time. Tip: only add salt 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time. Adding salt too early can cause the beans to crack. Coco de Paimpol goes very well with shellfish (mussels, cockles and scallops), fish, tomatoes, peppers, spicy charcuterie (andouille, chorizo, etc.) and with sausages such as in the famous cassoulet stew!
