A question about mature green beans

Post by PATRICE IN IL on Thu Aug 28, 2014 6:31 pm

So my pole beans(Blue Lake) have gone crazy while I wasn't able to pick them during my recovery. Most are too mature for eating as fresh green beans. I'm going to shell them and probably dehydrate them. What type of dishes would you use these dried beans in? I've never had my beans get to this stage and I don't want to waste them but I'm just not sure what to do with them either. Any suggestions?

well locally we call those "shelleys" and add them to cooked green beans and casseroles that also have green beans in them. I like to let several go until they start to dry on the vine for next years seeds.

They call them "shelley's" around here too. Wink  I've just never cooked with them and I'm not sure how to cook them.

I'll let some go later in the season to restock my seeds for next year. It's just too early in the season to have vines shutting down for replenishing seed stock.

I use them in soups and stews, like you would a pinto or other bean.

That's what I was kind of thinking of doing with them. Soup, stew or chili. Wink
