A simple recipe for cooking fresh green beans to perfection.
Add water to a medium-sized saucepan until about two-thirds of the way full. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Add green beans to water and allow to boil for 6-8 minutes, just until tender.
Do not allow them to cook far beyond this stage, as they will continue to cook slightly longer once removed from the heat. Immediately drain and transfer to serving dish.
*If you can’t find the bagged goodies in the produce section, don’t worry about those raggedy ol’ ends. All you need to do is stack them, a handful at a time, on their little behinds, lay them on your cutting board and cut about a ½” from the end and then repeat on the other side.
