Green Beans


Foggy morning at the weir of the heat wave.There are over 130 cultivars of “green bean.” Despite, or perhaps because of this diversity, the origin of green beans has been hard to isolate, but it is likely that green beans originated in Central and South America in BCE times and was moved to Europe by Columbus in the 1500s.

Simmered Summer Beans


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


In a saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. The vegetables will all be tender when they are done cooking. To make this a main dish, add a cup of your favored protein source (cheese, legumes, or meat).
