“I thoroughly enjoy young, fresh string beans. They are best when used within 3 to 7 days after picking, but best when freshly picked. I also love mushrooms and combined them with the string beans to make a tasty meal combination. Many years ago, we grew different varieties of beans and my mother cooked them in different ways.”
