Winni Engsminger gave us a paper bag full of beans on Sunday evening. Last year I bought some seeds for her at Whole Foods Market and this year Jen White gave her a few of their "different" seeds. Winni’s beans are huge. The Whites’ Miracle Grow doesn’t seem to be working as great of miracles without very much rain this season. They do have beans, just not very big ones.
As you can see in the picture, some of the beans are dark purple. The weird thing is that when you cook them, they turn green. Jen says they still leave a purple stain on the plates though.
Monday I just snapped them and shocked them, because they didn’t fit into the menu. They are in the freezer for now.
