Fresh is Special

We got these beauties in our CSA farm box today. I didn't have a clue what to do with them. So, I googled it. They are Cranberry shelling beans. I came across this article & started to get really excited! I think we'll try the Shelling Bean, Haricots Verts & Zucchini Salad with Anchovies. Most likely omitting the anchovies... Scott will be disappointed. But, I don't think I am strong enough...
Gillian loved the chore of shelling beans. She was so into it! She tried a bean at the beginning of the project. After giving it a good munch, decided it was yucky. But, something about the beans remained alluring to her. As she was shelling, she would try a bean again, about every tenth one. Each beautiful bean was still just as yucky!
