I had heard that they are tender and mild tasting, so this is my opportunity to try them.
|So when I got to my car with my new produce, I handed |
Ellery one of the beans from inside the pod.
She didn't want to try it, so I stuck it in my mouth and
chomped down on it.
Now, I typically like just about anything, so it is rare for me
to react like I did. I have to find out how to prepare these
puppies. It is obvious I'm gonna have to cook them or
something. They are not supposed to be eaten raw.
So I went to the website to figure it out.
After shelling the beans you have to cook them and then
shell each individual bean again.
Seriously. I have other things to do.
I haven't got Michael's memory board done, organized the
BBQ for Grad Night, made his t-shirt quilt, or a miriad of
other things for other people in my life. Plus, I was
expecting guests in a few hours.
Here I am shelling beans for an hour.
Then I have to blanch them.
Then I have to shell each individual one again.
So I spent about 2 hours of my precious time in the name of nutrition and organic food, which I semi don't think much of, in order to eat dinner.

It was pretty good, but .....
