  • Choose fresh green beans with a bright green color and firm texture; they should snap easily when bent. Avoid beans with brown spots or bruises.
  • Beans should be mostly smooth on the surface. Large bumps may mean that the bean is more mature and less tender to eat.
  • You can use fresh, frozen or canned green beans in most recipes. Choose what is cheapest.
  • If larger bags of frozen green beans are cheaper per ounce, use what you need then press out the air and reseal the bag carefully. Return to the freezer immediately.
  • 1 pound fresh green beans = about 3 cups when cut or 2 cups cooked
  • Green beans are also known as string beans or snap beans.

❁ Green beans are a good source of vitamin K and vitamin C.
