Green Beans are Available:

Fresh in the summer. Canned or frozen available year round.

How do Green Beans Grow:

Beans grow as a plant in your garden. They can climb high on trellis or supports.

What to Look for When Buying Green Beans:

Look for long and slender beans. They should not be too fat and you should not be able to see the actual beans through the skins. These are older and not as tasty.

Green Bean Storage Tips:

Store in the fridge in the crisper section or in a plastic bag for freshness.

Snap off ends and boil in large pot of water 3-5 minutes. Test for tenderness-don't overcook. Try cooking fresh green beans in a food steamer
