Bean picking tip

It's the time of year when the beans are just starting to come in; I picked the first of the (supposedly) dwarf borlotti beans this morning, just a wee handful. It needs several handfuls over several days to amass a meal's worth, so to keep them fresh, wrap them in a damp tea towel and keep them in the fridge; just add in a few beans every day until you have enough. They keep fresh and bright and crisp this way.
