Recipes from Marshall's Farm Market

Green Beans
Basic Preparation:

Snap stem ends of fresh green beans and rinse.

Steamed Green Beans:

For fresh, tender summer beans, steam or boil for only 5 minutes. For older tougher beans, cook up to 10 minutes until they can be pierced with a fork.

To retain the bright green color, plunge into a bowl of ice cold water after cooking, then drain.

Serve these variations hot, cold or room temperature:

Toss any of the following combos with your fresh steamed green beans. These can be served hot, cold or room temperature. Use a mild vinegar, like apple cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar.

Basil Green Beans: 1/4 cup mild vinegar, 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (or dill) and fresh ground pepper.

Red Onion Green Beans: 1/4 cup chopped red onion and 2 Tablespoons olive oil; Optionally add a handful of chopped parsley.

Green Onion/Tomato Green Beans: 1/4 cup mild vinegar, 1/4 cup sliced green onions, 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil and 1 chopped tomato.

Basic Preparation:

Squash is naturally sweet. Resist the temptation to dump lots of sugar or butter or anything on it. Try it's natural sweet state and enjoy the unique flavor of each squash. One exception is acorn squash, where I sprinkle just a pinch of nutmeg.

Baked: For most squashes, cut them in half (carefully with a large sharp knife that will slice through the thick skin) and scoop out the seeds. Spray or brush the cut-side with oil, place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for 30-45 minutes until tender. Scoop the squash out of it's shell into a bowl and mash it, or serve it right in the shell. Squash is incredibly good without anything added, being naturally sweet with a buttery or nutty taste.

Boiled: Some squashes (butternut, acorn) can be peeled, sliced in half, seeds removed, then cut into 1-1/2" chunks. Drop carefully into a pan of boiling water and boil for 10-15 minutes until tender.
