Buttin' in! ;-)
He's gotta be talking about string beans. Otherwise he'd be mentioning
green (lima) beans and corn in the same breath.
Succotash. Ready for that, we are, soon as the corn comes in!
Charlie....buttin' out now
wanted to make sure..............lol
i've heard so many refer to green beans in various ways!
ok, well now, bill, you could can them for later use. they can be grilled
you can boil them and season with bacon or ham bits, or butter (or a butter
substitute), cooked with boiled potatos is always good, pan sear for a crisp
taste, they are good for stir-fries (some soy sauce and carrot strips, maybe
a few water chestnuts) and then there is the ever famous string bean
casserole (with fried onion topping).
so take your pick................
rachael aka rae
not the rachael ray
well, i did say you could grill them too..........stir-fry isn't that high
in cholesterol when you cook it up right. when you stir-fry you could use
your olive or canola oil then. well, actually you could use those oil in
any of the ways i mentioned (expect during canning - lol)
bake with some smart balance (or whatever you use for butter/marg.)
when i pan-sear or even for frying sometimes, i use a salad dressing instead
of oil. last night was porkchops cooked in kraft free catalina dressing. i
use free italian to cook hamburgers in when i can't grill. also use italian
on the porkchops sometimes too.
string beans are pretty good with the free italian dressing for seasoning
too. but every now and then, you just have to go the good ole' southern
route. with the country ham bits or bacon with a bit of
butter............all full of cholesterol.......yum!
No, they don't have to be, but they are heat and moisture sensitive and
will drop off production if really hot and/or get too dry. Keep them
picked, or energy will go to seed production.
You should be doing fine. If you get some space freed up, refer to
OtherBill's frost planting guide and tuck in a few new seeds to start
production when the weather cools, if you think things are looking bad.
Just some reassurance here. Same story here, except one of the larger ones
has finally shown some orange hue to it. They'll probably all ripen within
a week of each other at this rate. Still making blooms as well.
Like the tomato to ripen on the plant, vice the window. Lot richer taste in
