Billions of Beans......


well not really... but certainly feels like it... after the peak crop, then a mass heat wave again, they stalled and didn't do anything... then UTOH.... mass produced more again!! From my 6 Scarlet Runner Beans and my 3 x 3 patch of Bush Beans I picked 2 gallons of beans and I also picked most of the rest of my tomatoes and the very last of my peppers...it made me feel sad that the season is ending already.... was a great year for a lot of crops even tho it was hot and dry...


so back to beans, beans and more beans!!! I have all these beans and I wanted to french them... a small order or so i thought... tedious slicing of beans, or Bean Frencher... hmmm

I went in search of the elusive Bean Frencher... apparently not in this community.. i'm actually suprised .. they had little plastic things, and bigger rotating cutters... but not one lousy Bean Frencher.... so i managed to find a hand Julienne 'peeler' that looked like that link... not a bad tool after i stopped bleeding... it maked a delightful equidistant pattern on my thumb.. could be used as a torture tool i'm sure....

Sometimes slow and steady is best.:) Our fancy grater always gets me.

We made a corn relish/salsa the other day based on your recipe...it was pretty darn good.
