This week I got some blue lake green beans at the farmer's market. I always thought they came from up North somewhere. Turns out they were developed in the Blue Lake Region near Ukiah in California. Later they were further hybridized in Oregon.
They are a string-less snap bean and they snap very easily. They also hold up well for canning.
I sauteed some onion and garlic and then tossed in the beans.
Next I added some fresh chopped tomatoes from my garden. I also added in a several herbs from my garden and a dash of vinegar and sugar. I cooked them till the beans were tender but not mushy. The beans were delicious. Meanwhile I've got some plates drying on the back porch. This time of year the porch heats up with the sun low in the Southern sky. I hope to fire on Thursday. Today I'm working at the gallery. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
