Editorial Reviews for  'Green Lentils (AOP Le Puy France)'
 
Product Description
Le Puy Lentils - 1 lb Le Puy, France "The best lentils in the world," according to Patricia Wells, Le Puy (pronounced PWEE) lentils are an attractive dark green color with blue marbling. True Le Puy lentils are grown on the mountain plateau around the French town of Le Puy en Velay in the Haute Loire region, which has a unique climate and rich volcanic soil in which the lentils thrive. Serving Suggestions Serve lentils either hot or cold as an accompaniment to poultry, fish, meat and game or added to soups and casseroles. They are the key accompaniment to such regional dishes as petit salé (salt pork and lentils) and jambonneau (a particular delicatessen-like ham). In France, they are often served cold in salads. About the AOC Designation The lentils are the first French foodstuff, other than wine or cheese, to be awarded the famous "Appellation d' Origine Contrôlée" mark of quality and assurance of origin. Le Puy's little green and blue marbled lentils retain their shape on cooking (although not as much of their color) and have a delicious flavor.
