add a hambone

We have had a variety of beans this year. Dragons Tongue, Kentucky Wonder and next this one, started in the hoop house (the others were outside) so they could climb. The ladder is out because we think we will need it!

I'll eat string beans raw, run through hummus. I'll add beans to a fresh tomato sauce that cooks only for the amount of time it takes pasta to boil.

Homer's favorite for beans is the way his family made them: in a pot with small potatoes and a hunk of smoked pork, a bit of water and cooked for a long time.

I also like to steam them to a bright green, then butter, salt, pepper and parsley. Yup!
