👩🏻🍳How to Select Green Beans
Green beans come in a variety of colors from yellow to purple and include bush, wax, vine, and string varietals. Native to South America there are over 100 varieties available in the US.
When shopping for green beans, look for firm, bright (for the varietal color), smooth pods (wrinkles or lumps mean old and/or overripe). They should feel snappy when broken in two.
🌡️How to Store Green Beans
Refrigerate unwashed beans in an opened plastic bag for up to 5 days. For maximum crispness, it’s best to use the beans within 2 days of purchase.
Frozen green beans will last up to 4 months in their original packaging. Longer in a deep freezer.
🔪How to Clean Green Beans
Thoroughly rinse the beans in lukewarm water, then snap off and discard the stem ends, pulling any strings down along the length of the beans.
Cut the beans into desired lengths or leave them whole. I recommend cutting off the stem end. Or, cut them French-style by slicing lengthwise into halves or quarters.
💬Frequently Asked Questions
