Butterbeans with Rosemary and Garlic

I wonder if many of us realize how fortunate we are that we are STILL able to get fresh butterbeans at our Market? They are labor intensive and many farmers do not have the help to pick them so they no longer grown them. BUT we do have them at Market2Go and at the Mainstreet Farmers Market on Sat…for awhile! Please try some of this valuable bean. Here is a different recipe to tempt you!
