Vegetable Handling and Preparation Tips…
GREEN BEANS: Fresh green beans taste best when eaten soon after harvesting. They will stay fresh for up to one week refrigerated in a plastic bag. Remove stem end and cook whole; beans will retain more nutrients if uncut.
To cook beans, simmer in boiling water for 5-10 minutes. Watch for the beans to brighten in color and become tender but not soft. Cook less for chilled bean salads to maintain crispness.
Green beans taste incredible when served with simple ingredients. Try them with a little lemon, butter, salt and pepper or with onion in a warm dill vinaigrette. For an unusual flavor, serve them with green onions, chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice.
