How can I prepare fresh green beans to taste good? Neither my husband or myself like fresh or frozen green beans as we don't like the grassy taste they have. However, I am trying to distance us from eating canned goods and eating a little more fresh and healthy. Fresh green beans are just so icky to us. I have tried boiling them for a while, about an hour I guess, with seasonings, butter, and a dash of white vinegar to help remove some of the green taste, and they are still very crunchy and green tasting. Yuck. Any suggestions? Thank you.
