Beans (specialty)

About Me: At Catena Farm we grow a few varieties of specialty beans. Currently we grow:

Dragon Langerie - a gorgeous cream and purple streaked heirloom bean.

Rattlesnake - a really cool green and dark purple streaked heirloom bean.

They 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.
