Week Ten of Summer Shares

We are recruiting you!  Yes, you don’t have a choice.. This week we have a little work for you, but it will be worth it.  You will find raw form almonds in your share that need to be hulled!  That means you will need to remove the outter shell to keep them from molding and then lay them out to dry and the sooner the better.  It is easier to remove the inner shell when done at this stage, but can wait.  They aren’t in the your box, so be sure to grab a bag!

Green bean in brown butter

My husband is such a trooper. He is my official taste taster for all the recipes I post on here. And he said this is one of the best yet. Hopefully you all agree when you try it.

What you will need

  • About a pound of fresh green beans
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small onion
  • Fresh ground pepper

Cut the tips off the green beans (they don’t tast very good) and slice the onion in half then in strips. Steam green beans for about 3-5 or until they turn bright green, add onion slices to green beans and steam until beans are tender. While beans and onion are steaming, put the butter in a sauté pan. Cook on medium heat until butter does not foam anymore. ( be careful not to burn the butter) add minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds to a minute. Carefully pour butter mixture on to green bean mixture and stir to coat. Add a little fresh ground pepper and Serve hot.
