Fresh Beans?



Another to the list of amazing things in Korea! Fresh beans! I am frustrated because beans as we know them in the United States are really non existent in Korea or if we do find them like these cans of Garbanzo and Black Beans, they are a stack of Korean won--almost $4 a can! They import them from Italy. They do have some very expensive dried beans which I bought and cooked but they didn't taste very good--very dry and bland. So we bought these fresh beans from a lady sitting on the ground in the subway station. This is our second try at fresh beans and they are VERY yummy!

I always craved Mexican food when I was in France. We take our neighbors for granted, don't we?
