BUTTERY GREEN BEANS
12 oz. fresh green beans
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter
Rinse green beans.
Boil in salted water until slightly soft. *
Add butter to pot. Heat stove on a low setting.
Mix the green beans with butter and salt.
Serves 2 -3
*Note: I check the green beans before draining. After boiling for 5 to 7 minutes, I remove a green bean, dry it, and break it in half. If it breaks easily, the beans are ready to drain. If they seem on the verge of being too soft, I quickly throw them into the colander to drain and run them under cold water. This prevents them from continuing to cook.
