Beans in Season

Green beans are in season, even the purple ones! What a wonderful surprise at the market last weekend when we came upon purple beans. 

The color is so rich and lovely, like a vintage velvet. As for the taste, I don't really see much of a difference, so you can always substitute when available. Susan decided to make a batch of mixed color dilly beans, using the purple and green varieties. These are fantastic on their own, but even better in Bloody Mary's.

Have you seen anything exciting coming into season?
