Beans (Specialty)

About Me: At Catena Farm we grow a few varieties of specialty beans. These specialty beans can have beautiful spots and stripes and striking colours. We also grow an extra long string bean that can reach up to 18 inches long!

All our specialty beans can be eaten fresh or cooked and are great in green bean salads, casseroles, or even as a raw snack with some dip. Unfortunately, the streaks will fade when cooked.

To store: Store unwashed fresh beans in a cotton mesh bag, then covered reused plastic bag, or put into an airtight container. Keep fresh beans in the fridge for up to two weeks.

To freeze: Blanch washed beans for 1 minute. Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process, drain, and pack into airtight containers. Beans will not have a crunch after being frozen.
