As a farm girl I've always grown and cooked vegetables. I have cooked green beans several ways including canning them for Winter eating. One very delicious way to cook fresh, green beans is adding freshly dug irish potatoes to the pot. My potatoes are growing so well, I have some in my garden and some in buckets. My neighbor will supply the fresh green beans, a wonderful summer dish. ENJOY IT !!
