How to string stringed beans

deanriowa(4b)July 9, 2008

I am growing pole beans this year for the first time and some of them will have strings.

I heard people mention they have problems removing all of the strings from their beans. I thought all you did was break/snap off the stem end and pull the string from the back of the bean or is there something else I need to know?

How do you remove the strings from your beans?

That is basicly it Dean. Just remember to remove the string from both sides of the bean. Some folks who really hate strings may peel down both sides of the pod with a paring knife. Hard to get them all no matter how you do it. I like the flavor of string beans, but my wife is completly turned off when she encounters a string and refuses to eat them.
