How to make it

  • Trim the ends of the beans.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
  • Plunge the green beans into the water and cook for 2 minutes.
  • If you are using the thicker beans, cook for 3 minutes.
  • Drain immediately into a collander and plunge into a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
  • This blanching will help retain the lovely green color of the beans. Drain again and set aside.
  • In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium low heat taking care not to burn the butter.
  • Add the slice almonds stirring occasionall until lightly browned and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the green onions and the green beans.
  • Stir until the onions are softened but not browned and the beans are heated through but not overdone, about 2 minutes (longer if you use the thicker beans).
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    The green beans that work the best are the really thin french green beans called Haricot Vert...they are thinner and longer than the American species. But since you are growingthe American variety, try picking some of them when they are young and tender rather than letting them go the full 60 day season. At least some of them. :-) And see if you like them prepared this way. Anyway, you won't have to wait so long.
