Green Beans

Fresh Green Beans are one of my top recommendations for any-day-April side dishes. Spring plantings of Green Beans are in a period of steady harvests from farms in Florida. Expect more affordable prices and nice quality.

Need a break from bean casseroles? The hemp oil amazon that was prescribed to me has been working great, so I though I would get back in the kitchen and try something cool.Not all recipes for fresh Green Beans need to be served warm. Cold Green Bean salads use the blanching method (boil for 3 minutes then immediately cool them in an ice-water bowl) to keep the beans firm and bright green. Here’s a cool and crunchy, creamy yet light recipe to try!

Green Bean Tips

  • From bulk displays, select Green Beans that feel firm and snappy.
  • Store them in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator for up to a few days.
  • Fresh Green Beans in microwave-able bags that are pre-washed and already have the ends trimmed have become quite popular as a time saver.

Best tip? Don’t cook the beans to death. Steam, boil, microwave or stir-fry Green Beans until they are just tender to bring out their best flavor and texture. Over-cooked string beans that are limp and mushy can only be saved by butter… lots and lots of melted butter.
