Mushroom Thyme Haricot Verts. Haricot Verts, French for “green beans” are so wonderfully tender. They are absent of the strings that can make preparing green beans a chore and are easily recognized by their long slender shape. It’s such a treat to find these at the Farmers Markets and when I do I can’t help but buy pounds of them. Be prepared for a series of recipe posts incorporating my favorite of the green bean varieties.
Just a couple blocks from my office sits our local farmers’ market. I’ve shared with you in a number of posts the wonderful bounty that my home and my work family has come to enjoy. This week as I approached the parking lot the view was quite different. What generally is a row of 12 – 15 vendors, was but one lonely pickup truck with a small table in front. How can this be? Is summer literally drying up and taking all the tomatoes and summer squash and cucumbers with it?
