Garden Green Beans

We are harvesting the last few weeks of garden produce. We always miss the fresh grown-in-the-backyard flavor during the winter months. I thought I'd share one of our favorite ways to prepare garden green beans.

To have these work, you'll need to have a pressure cooker. A pressure cooker is a marvelous tool that saves lots of time in the kitchen. Wash and snip the ends off of your fresh beans. Place in your pressure cooker. Chop one garden onion and add it to the pot. Sprinkle in a little garlic powder and onion powder as well a bit of salt and pepper. Then just follow the instructions for green beans in your pressure canner. (Each one is slightly different.) We add a bit of water and then we need to let ours get to pressure and then go for 3 minutes. It takes 12-15 minutes total. These are the most delicious green beans ever! The addition of the onions and spices really make a HUGE difference. They make a tasty, fresh side dish for many meals during the summer at our house. We hope you enjoy them too.
