I can’t tell you how many beans I snapped as a child. I know it was a lot. Bushels and Bushels, honestly. Not only did I help snap our own beans, I also helped my grandmother in her garden! In today’s parenting standard that would often be considered hard work. However, those were some of my fondest memories.
Hard work or not, I truly get get excited as soon as green beans come into season! Although canned green beans will do in a pinch, there is nothing better than fresh green beans.
As I continue down memory lane, I remember bushels upon bushels of beans to snap and can. Many days we did this on my mom’s front porch, listening to the trees sway back and forth, the distant calls from birds, and all the peaceful country sounds. It was very relaxing to be quite honest.
It was a wonderful way to get chores done while we talked and made memories that have lasted all my life. Some days we would take our bean snapping duties to my Grandma’s house.
We would all be sitting around snapping beans and talking about everything and anything until eventually my grandma would doze off. We would then toss a handful of beans over on her lap to wake her up.
I remember these times like they were yesterday. My grandma was always a good sport about it and would usually toss beans back at us. Remind me someday to tell you the story about how my grandma washed dishes for hours. 😉
It’s no secret that I love green beans. I enjoy the taste. I enjoy canning them. Mostly, I enjoy the memories I’m reminded of when I snap green beans.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a garden yet down here. Luckily, I have some wonderful Amish folks near me that keep me stocked! However, not just any green bean will do.
I don’t care for those fancy crunchy green beans you see in expensive restaurants. When I share a green bean recipe, you can bet your bottom dollar it will be country-style.
