Green Beans

Helpful tips on how to store and prepare green beans

Green Bean Orzo Skillet


Store unwashed fresh beans in a rusable container or plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper.  Whole beans stored this way should keep for about seven days.    

Kitchen Tip

To cook fresh green beans quickly, steam them in the microwave. Simply place 3-4 Tbsp. broth or water in a microwaveable dish, add the green beans and cover loosely with wax paper or plastic wrap, leaving one corner open to allow steam to escape. Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes and you’ll have perfect, tender-crisp, bright green beans.
