One may also ask, what is the difference between a string bean and green bean? From what I am aware of, green beans and string beans are one and the same. Some call them snap beans too. They are all the same thing. The only difference is the type of the green bean plant that comes in two varieties- bush and climber.
Then, how do you make stringy green beans?
Nice, thin, young beans do not have a tough string. Pick them BEFORE that tough string developes. We bring the water to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer for about 12-15 minutes. Drain the water ---- add S & P ---- I like a small amount of butter.
