Tip of the Day: How to Select Green Beans!

When selecting green beans, try to find beans that are smooth and crispy. If the bean is too soft it will not snap when bent in half. These beans are old and will cook up rubbery instead of crisp. If the skin is translucent and you can see the beans through the pods they have been picked past their prime.

Once you get your beans home place them into a tightly sealed container and refrigerate until ready for use.
Beans should be used within 4-5 days after purchase.
