Butterbeans with Rosemary and Garlic

I wonder if many of us realize how fortunate we are that we are STILL able to get fresh butter beans at our Market? They are labor intensive and many farmers do not have the help to pick them so they no longer grow 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! If you do not see them one week check back the next….the season goes through mid to late July and sometimes there is another late planting for early fall beans. Thank goodness our farmers persevere for us!
