USES & COOKING SUGGESTIONS

Steaming
Step 1
Prepare your green beans by rinsing them in cold water to remove any dirt that may be on them.

Step 2
Place clean green beans on a cutting board and, using a sharp knife, cut them into smaller pieces — around 1 or 2 inches apiece, depending on how long you want them. You may also decide to leave them whole, which is fine.

Step 3
Fill a steamer basket with the amount of green beans you want to steam. The basket must be small enough to fit into a saucepan with a lid while leaving at least 1 inch of space between the bottom of the basket and the bottom of the pan.
