Fresh or Canned Green Beans Camp?
Tell me… green beans. Yay or nay? For me, definitely yay, but I’ll only serve them fresh. I’ve never been a fan of the canned version. I just don’t like the watery soft texture of the beans.
Green beans have an odd smell when you first open the can too. Plus, I didn’t grown up with canned beans, so it’s not something I’ve ever been accustomed to.
I picked up these fresh green beans from a produce stand in Maryland when I went to visit my sister and her family last week.
We were getting ready for one of many feasts that we had while I was there, and I wanted to contribute by making a couple of healthy dishes.
Preparing Fresh Green Beans For Roasting
Maryland hasn’t been informed that fresh green beans should be reasonably priced though, especially during the summer months. I think I paid almost $5 for a pound. Yikes!
Maybe they were organic and I just didn’t notice.
To prepare green beans for roasting, first place them in a colander and rinse them with cool water.
Next, remove the stem by snapping them off with your fingers. Farmer’s markets usually leave the stems on, but many grocery stores already remove them.
Finally, remove the tips with a paring knife. You don’t have to do this, but out of habit I do. I also line up the green beans and try to cut them in evenly sized pieces.
