Now that the weather has warmed here in northwest Washington state , our vegetable garden is producing well. In addition to all the zucchini and cucumbers, we've harvested lots of green beans.
In the spring, I used bamboo poles I purchased at our farmer's market to provide the main structure for the teepee. My husband "planted" them in the four corners of the plot, tied them together near the top, then I wrapped the whole thing with yarn scraps for the beans to climb on. Only the outer edges of the 4 x 6 rectangle were planted.
My favorite way to eat green beans is steamed, just tender-crisp, with butter and salt. My family prefers them cooked with bacon, or lightly oiled and roasted in the oven. And of course there is the green bean casserole with holiday meals.
How do you like to eat green beans? Any recipes for using up any garden vegetables would be appreciated.
