LJB Farms Blue Lake Green Beans have just been harvested from our fields and are ready for your table.
Blue Lake beans have a dark green, cylindrical, stringless, firm, and plump pod. The pod contains tiny pale green to white edible seeds. The bean’s flavor is distinctively mild, subtly grassy and sweet, with a crisp-tender texture. Blue Lake beans produce an abundant crop of pods that can reach 6 to 7 inches in length.
Blue Lake beans are a mild and versatile vegetable. They can be served whole or sliced in both cooked and raw preparations. Add whole or halved to salads, saute or steam with other vegetables or chop and mix into quiche, curry and casseroles. Blue lake beans are also perfect for quick pickling or canning. Their flavor pairs well with fresh herbs, citrus, nuts, raisins, hard cheeses, lemon, tomatoes and summer squash.
