Buttery Crisp Sauteed Green Beans

Buttery Crisp Sauteed Green Beans
found at Mommy's Kitchen

Kosher Salt (to taste)
3/4 - 1 lb (pound) fresh green beans, trimmed
2-3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup water
Freshly Ground Pepper
Using a large bowl prepare a ice water bath and set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add salt. Cook green beans until crisp tender, about 3-5 minutes. using a slotted spoon, transfer the beans to the ice water bath (this will stop the cooking process). Drain and set aside. In a large sauce pan bring 1/4 cup water and butter to a boil over medium high heat. Saute' the beans until they are just heated through. Season with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.

Very good, and a yummy way to use up the huge amount of green beans at harvest time. What a difference when you cook fresh green beans compared to the ones in a can.
