Magic Beans

I’ve been loving hitting the Coldstream Farmer’s Market just up the road for fruits and vegetables from local producers.

It has allowed me to discover the joys of blue potatoes, golden beets and magic beans!

Well, maybe not magic, but definitely fun to cook. They were actually delicious green beans, but one of two batches that I bought were purple to begin with.

After a quick steam though, they were back to the traditional green, though definitely a darker shade than the regular green beans.

I hope you’ve been taking advantage of the fresh produce from growers in your area!

  1. Amanda,

    The change in colour seems hard to believe. I assume they taste pretty much the same and will definitely get some to try out.
