This sounds yummy!

Hello Johndeersey, I'm not sure exactly where it's sold, though I know you can find them online. I say you can substitute with any dried red bean. But cattle beans literally look like a spotted cow, with red/brown and white colors. Thanks!

Where Can You Get Jacob's Cattle Beans At I have never heard of them?

Jacob's cattle beans are an heirloom bean. They are very attractive, large sort of kidney shaped speckled beans. I've seem them at Whole Foods and independent organic stores. You don't have to have these beans, but they make quite a presentation if you can get them! Sometimes they're called trout bean, Dalmatian bean, or Appaloosa bean.
