A few weeks ago, The Farmer and I were helping out his family by selling produce at the local farmers' market. While we were there, a woman came by to buy some yellow wax beans, a vegetable I had never tried. We talked for a bit and she shared a recipe for the beans that she described as "the yankee way". Obviously, I have no idea how Yankees do things, so I knew I had to try out this "yankee" bean recipe...it was, to my surprise, very good; just not as good as the "southern way"...but I'm extremely biased.

1. Steam the wax beans for about 15 minutes.
2. Heat the milk on the stove and once it is done heating, at the beans to the milk and place the butter on top.
3. Mix until the butter is fully melted, then stir in the salt and pepper.
4. Sit back, and enjoy one of the yankee's best recipes!
