There are several different types of beans, such as green, runner, snake and broad beans, in season at various times of year and with differing health properties. All are a great source of nutrients, however, and add fibre to the dinner plate too.

To Buy:
Buy them as small as you can find as they will hold the most flavour. They should be firm and bright in colour and free of wrinkles, dampness and discolouration.
To Store:
In plastic bags in the crisper section of the fridge for up to 3 days.
Tips & Tricks:
Cooking Tips:
Beans cooked in boiling water can lose their bright colour due to some chemical reaction between the water and the chlorophyll in the bean. Retain more nutrients and colour by steaming them for between 5 - 10 minutes, depending on their size.
