Green beans!

Here's a simple way to prepare fresh handpicked green beans, they're already so fresh and bursting with flavour that you don't really have to do much.

Big bunch of freshly picked Green beans
- 1/2 Lemon (zest and juice)
1 knob butter

Steam or blanch your green beans for a couple of minutes (with a bit of salt) or do your desired likeness, they really should still be snappy but tender enough to sink your teeth in.

Strain them and add butter to the pan, heat until almost melted then add lemon juice and zest. Add salt to taste and toss your green beans in the lemon butter sauce.

If you are taking a while to prepare the sauce you want to cool your beans in ice water and drain and then work on the sauce as to avoid them over cooking!
