Hurst Family Harvest – Winners Announced & Final Giveaway Begins!

Hurst Family Harvest

hurst family harvestWell guys, this is the last week of my Hurst Family Harvest giveaways. I have had so much fun sharing recipes and giving away lots of prizes.

I have made a ton of new recipes as well as some tried and true options. With winter here, I am just getting started started. Most every week until spring hits, you will find a pot of beans simmering in my crockpot! The ease and price make Hurst beans a must at my house.

Many of you have shared your goals for saving money in 2013. Keep in mind, that Hurst Family Harvest beans are a fantastic way to stretch your dollar! With a little planning you can easily get 2 – 3 meals with one batch of cooked beans. That is a whole lot of food for just $2.99! I usually serve them as a side dish, then they go in a soup/stew/chili and finally the rest are used in a cold salad or casserole. This is one of my favorite ways to stretch my budget and also keep my time in the kitchen to a minimum.

With Hurst Family Harvest, you have so many options. Honestly, you can't go wrong. If you are not feeling creative, just grab a bag and follow the super simple recipe that is on the back of each bag.

I have winners to announce from the third round of giveaways! Congratulations to the following folks:

  1. jenni says

    haven’t tried them yet, but would LOVE to try some of the recipes!
    i’m always looking for new products!

  2. Kyle says

    I normally purchase the Hurst Hambeen’s 15 Bean Soup. As much as I love that product, I have no doubt the Harvest line would be as good as the bean soup.

  3. Tony Albano says

    Beans, beans, the musical fruit
    The more you eat, the more you toot
    The more you toot, the better you feel
    So we have Hurst beans at every meal!

  4. raluca berger says

    the tri bean stew lasted almost for 4 days but it was yammy, nwxt time we will cook the chili bean …

  5. Tina G. says

    I haven’t yet tried them, but because of these posts you’ve had about them, I did just buy 3 different ones. Just haven’t tried them yet.

  6. Lila says

    I liked them on Facebook. Lentils are one of my favorite beans. Added a little brown rice into the lentil soup, a little sour cream and it was delicious!

  7. Laurie D says

    I haven’t tried them yet, but still want to try the white chicken chili recipe! Maybe now that the holidays have settled down, I’ll find some time!

    • mrsjhuff says

      The White bean Chili is GREAT… If you like spice dice some jalapenos and make jalapeno corn bread with…. YUMMY!

  8. Samantha V says

    Split pea is also one of my favorites especially on a cold night like tonight with a side of warm crusty bread. yum.

  9. shirley L says

    We love the beans….we make a batch up and then incorporate them in our meals over the week….salads..beans and rice..whatever way we think will work. They are inexpensive and a good source of vitamins and fiber

  10. Dorothy says

    This past weekend I cooked the White Chili beans with the recipe on the back of package(ground chicken, green pepper, onion, beans, seasoning packet). It was a little spicy but very good. This was my first time trying Hurst but won’t be the last. Looking forward to trying some different varieties. Thanks Hurst and I Heart Publix for the giveaway!

  11. Rhonda says

    Had the White Chili(YUMMY) and going to try the Split Pea with Ham this weekend. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. Tanya eads says

    This is a product that I had not ever tried before or to be honest ever considered getting but because of your site, ideas and coupon advice and values my family tried the Southwestern White Bean Chili and loved it and is now a product I would purchase again and dare I might say even if there was no coupon!

  19. Cassandra says

    I love that the seasoning packet is not super salty like other seasoning packets…I know I can use the whole thing without worrying about how salty it will turn out!

  20. Kira says

    I love how easy they make it to prepare a healthy dinner! I always have a few varieties on hand for using up the leftover chicken or ham bone from a previous night’s dinner. White Bean Chili and Tri-Bean Soup are our favorites!

  41. Lisa F. says

    We love the beans and I love the fact of using my crock pot to cook them. Great meal for the family with great nutritional value. Our favorite is the tri-bean soup w/ham. Stir up some homemade cornbread – there ain’t nothin’ better!

  42. Linda Burgoyne says

    I have had Hurst Family Harvest beans on my table! I have tried the Cajun red bean soup, tri-color beans, white bean chicken chili and the split pea soup. I like the split pea soup the best. : )

  43. Pam says

  49. Sharon R says

    They have so many varieties that I haven’t gotten a chance to try, but so far I think the best is the White Bean Chili – I would give that one top marks for flavor and versatility.

    I LOVE beans and hadn’t found the Hurst brand in my store. I will search other stores until I find them! I make Spanish Bean soup; lentil soup; chili; kidney bean salad (tossed salad with beans) and lots of meat free meals.

  59. KatrinaW says

    We have not tried Hurst beans yet but now that we finally have a Publix, I hope we can branch out and use different brands. We have never been offered much variety at the supermarkets that we have shopped for years. You know they say, “variety is the spice of life”. Thanks!

  60. Angela says

    We have yet to try the Hurst beans but your weekly postings about them are making it very enticing. My carnivore husband makes it hard to make a non meat dinner and keep him full! Its my plan to try them out in the near future. I love beans!

    I have also liked Hurst on FB since the beginning of these giveaways :-)

  66. Jessica says

    I would very much like to try the Tri-Bean soup! Just looking at the website seemed to be very simple and with working (teaching), and taking care of my family, easy/healthy meals are always appreciated. I appreciate you giving all of us IHeartPublix readers the chance to learn about great products as this and win fabulous prizes. Thank you! :)

  71. Melissa says

    I have tried the Tri Bean Soup….absolutely delicious! Looking forward to trying the others.

  72. teresa martinez says

    I haven’t tried Hurst family beans, but they look delicious and worth a try! i will have to pick some up when i am at the store next and try your idea of cooking them in the crock. i haven’t tried a crock beans recipe before, but this could be fun!

  73. Cherish says

    I have never tried the beans. I have been meaning to start making beans from scratch I just never have.

  74. Kristina says

    We haven’t tried them yet but are planning to with our new healthier diets to help lose weight.

    Have not tried the beans myself, but sound like something good to send to my son in college!

  77. selena says

    thanks for a chance to win! I love the black beans. They are my go-to beans when I can’t think of anything to cook.

  78. Michelle says

    Yes and we LOVE them! Even my bean loving 1 year old shovels them in without even chewing them 😉

  79. Tara C. says

    I have not tried these beans yet however my fiance passed them in Publix the last time we were there and wanted to try them. I picked them up and we will be trying them out this weekend.

  80. Linda Jordan says

    I have bought Hurst beans for years and my family loves them. I just recently became familiar with Hurst Family Harvest beans. We love the white bean chili and I have the Black Bean and Split Pea Soup varities yet to try. I’m sure we will like them also. Thanks for providing this information on your site to introduce us to something new. Beans are so healthy for families like ours with diabetes and a heart bypass.

  81. Linda Jordan says

    I Liked Hurst Family Harvest on Facebook. They have some great recipes on their Facebook page. I will be trying some of them soom!

  82. Shatoya says

    I have not tired these beans before but I sure would love to try. My mom recently had surgery to remove a brain tumor and is now getting treated with radiation and chemo therapy, while I take care of her. One of the things the doctors recommend was food high in protein and iron so I will be making more beans for sure. Either win would be great. Thanks for sharing!!

  83. Lisa Marie says

    I have not tried the beans yet. which I must say is quite odd, I feel like I was raised on not much more than beans! lol And all three of my children love beans and tortillas!

  84. Linda Hofstra says

    I have tried the soups and thought they were seasoned just right. They smell great while cooking in my crock pot. The one I liked best was the white bean chili. The beans were high quality, I didn’t even presoak them and they were tender.

  85. Tanya Jenkins says

    I tried these back in September 2012 for the first time after you had posted about them with a recipe. I fell in love with them. They are easy to use, and best of all taste great. My husband came home from overseas for two weeks during Christmas and I made them for him and he loved them too. I sent him back with 4 bags in his luggage and will be mailing him more because he as well as his coworkers love them too.

  86. Lauren says

    They’re a little more work than instant but worth it in the long run with the spice packet. I especially like the white bean chili or the hickory lentils. They’re easily a good meat-less, affordable meal!

  87. Ginger says

    Haven’t tried them yet. We do eat a lot of meals using dried beans. Much more economical and more healthy than canned. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  88. Lisa Duncan says

    I have not tried their beans yet, but I love beans so I’m sure I won’t be disappointed!

  89. J Snead says

    I love to make dried beans in my crockpot. Add a bit of ham, or even Spam, and you eat good for days!

  90. Dawnet Ward says

    We love making white chicken chili with Hurst Beans – it is one of our favorite go to “comfort” recipes.

  91. Jay says

    I have not tried them yet but not only do I plan on trying them I am going to their website to find as many recipes that I can for the different varieties. This sounds like a great way to stretch our dollar. I also liked them on Facebook.

  92. Monica says

    I have tried them and my family loves them! I have tried the white bean chili and have the split pea soup waiting in my pantry to try.

  93. Suzanne says

    Havn’t tried yet but they look good so I guess im just gonns have to go out and buy some!!!LOL They really do look good!!

  94. says

    i try the 15 bean soup with ground beef in it other night. it was surprised good soup. and they last for few days which is good and easy on budget.

  95. denise says

    We have loved all the varities of the Hurst beans we’ve tried so far. My Dr. recently had me pull gluten and dairy from my diet (pretty devestating if you ask me!) So I trolled the internet as hungry as can be and found that I can eat beans galore! I did a happy dance and headed to my pantry for some Hurst lentils and tried out this new recipie….

    Spicy Indian Dahl-
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1 tsp olive oil
    2 bay leaves
    1 cup washed Hurst lentils
    2 cups chicken stock
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp curry powder
    1/2 tsp turmeric

    In a large pot sweat the garlic in the olive oil with the bay leaves on medium heat. Add in the Hurst lentils and coat with oil. Add in the spices and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to low and let simmer for 20 minutes or until the Hurst lentils are soft. And enjoy!

  96. Mareka says

    I’m going to pick some up this Sunday when I do my weekly shopping trip. And thanks to you I will also be saving a bunch of cash. Thanks :) :)

  97. Jaclyn says

    I have not tried these yet and want to try them all, mainly because we are going gluten free and these sound like a great gluten free dinner!

  98. Krystin says

    I haven’t tried the beans, but am looking forward to trying them and learn new ways to save money:)

  99. kathleen houston says

    havent tried the beans yet. hoping to win the chance with this giveaway! thanks for all you do

  100. GAshopper says

    Haven’t tried the beans yet but my husband loves chili so I’m hoping to use them for that!

  101. Randa Nicholson says

    These beans are amazing! Life changing! And yes as many of you have tried wonderful for a quick fix in the crockpot! I haven’t met a flavor/kind i didn’t like!

  102. Victoria says

    Haven’t tried them yet. But I like the idea of getting the seasoning and the recipe concept in one bag, not just a bag of plain ole beans.

  103. Penny says

    I haven’t tried the beans yet…when they’re on sale I’ll take them to my mother so she can make an awesome meal out of them.
