Stringy Beans and Simple Living

I’ll be the first to admit that simpler living isn’t always easier, and there can be a learning curve.  

I was so proud to show off to my aunt when she visited that I had pressure canned several jars of pole beans grown organically from our garden last summer.   My husband commented on how tasty they were, and that the batch my aunt helped me pick and steam that late summer day seemed even better, without that tough stringy part.  


While I had recalled learning to snap beans at a child and watching my mother can them, I apparently hadn’t learned how to pull the string off the side of each one, so I missed that little detail until Aunt Ruby reminded me.
