Great northern beans are a white bean, very similar to Cannellini Beans, though slightly smaller in size. They have a delicate flavour and absorb other flavours well, making them perfect for any dish that calls for a milder tasting bean, or one that has many other strong flavours. They typically have a smooth texture that melts in the mouth. Many cooks find that the somewhat neutral flavour of the beans can serve as a good base to a range of dishes from savoury and sweet.
