“Snap, string, or green beans are all names for pole or bush beans that grow in the spring and early fall. You’ll find pole and bush beans in green, yellow, and purple hues. Haricots verts are a smaller, thinner French variety.”

Storage Tips

  • Refrigerator: Store unwashed fresh beans in a reusable container or plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper. Whole beans stored this way should keep for about seven days.
  • Freezing Green Beans:
    • Rinse your green beans in cool water and then drain. Cut the ends of the beans off and then cut the beans to whatever length you prefer.
    • Put the green beans into rapidly boiling water, cover the pot and boil them for 3 minutes. (You can re-use this water three to five times – but make sure it’s brought back to a rolling boil).
    • Use a large slotted spoon to remove the green beans from the boiling water and immediately plunge them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Keep them in the ice water for 3 minutes. Drain them well.
    • Put the green beans into a reusable airtight freezer container or ziplock freezer bags. Make sure you get as much air out of the container or ziplock bag as possible to help prevent freezer burn.

Culinary Tips

Just prior to using the green beans, wash them under running water. Remove both ends of the beans by either snapping them off or cutting them with a knife.

  • Boil for about 4 minutes. They’ll turn a bright green color in the process. This will make a nice, crunchy bean. If you prefer yours mushy, boil them a little longer.
  • Sautéing quickly removes some moisture from the beans, concentrating their flavor while also improving their snap. It is suggested to steam the beans after this so that they cook all the way through.
  • Steaming  prevents the beans from overcooking and preserves a vibrant green color.
