These beans come from 2 hours away and are very fresh. These will be on our Thanksgiving table. My kids go wild for these when cooked with shallots and cream. They go fast. This year, I plan on filling a warming tray with them as I bought 4 pounds.
One of the benefit of buying local seasonal foods is cost. These green beans are very abundant during harvest so they are very inexpensive and very fresh.
This year we have about 4-5 local produce items ready to be cooked for 2009 turkey day. I did not get a local turkey this year. Maybe for Christmas dinner.
