Dilly Wax Beans

1st3rd                                   Trim 1 1/2 pounds yellow wax beans (or green string beans).

Blanch beans in salted water 4-5 minutes (until tender, but still a little crisp).



Meanwhile, melt 4 T butter (half a stick). Add zest and juice of one lime (or lemon), 1 1/2 t sea salt, 1 1/2 t dill weed, 1 t cracked black pepper, 1 t parsley,       1 t grated fresh ginger, 1/2 t ground mustard. Combine.




Drain beans and gently toss with butter mixture. Serve immediately. The last time I made these I used haricots verts (French String Beans), lemon & garlic.
