You asked: which of the following are legal

Some of the dried white beans I can get are:

- Haricot Beans (small white) - These are legal and are the same as navy beans

- Canellini Beans (longer white)- no

- Butter Beans (larger white flat)-no

- Kidney beans (purply/plan colour)-no at the start of using beans but try later and go carefully.

- Black eye beans - no but black beans may be tried later.

Also see, http://www.uclbs.org/beansaboutbeans.htm for more legal bean info.
