Beans and Peas

June 15, 2009

First Bush Bean Harvest

I was reminded today how much more flavorful vegetables are when just picked. We had our first bush beans and also peas. I hope that there will be enough peas for another mess before the vines perish in the heat here. The bush beans are charging right on ahead and we should have several more meals out of our small patch before they grow themselves out. I can taste them now. Yum!

I usually just break the beans and boil them in water with a little salt and oil. How do you cook your green beans? Do you have a special way to cook them? What about your green peas? How many different ways can you think of to cook green beans?
