Cooking with Yardlong (Snake) Beans
Actually, they are not really a yard long, but they are really long green beans nonetheless! When I first seen them, I thought of little garter snakes; ha! A friend of mine that owns a grocery store gave me a few the other day, since some guy offered him a bunch of them for free (just a small sample for cooking purposes in hopes to sell in bundles, I'm assuming).
At any rate, I cut them into normal-sized pieces and cooked them just like I would fresh-picked green beans. So, what is the big deal? Nothing, really. They are good, like green beans, so I guess what makes them so interesting is the way they grow and the size they are. You can read more about that, here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vigna_unguiculata_subsp._sesquipedalis
