A nrighbor just gave me a bag of these from her garden. I've never made them before. The pods are green but the beans inside are dark pink streaked with white, and they are large -- abot 1 inch long. Her directions were of the "cook them till they're done" variety. Mark Bittman says a bit of water, salt and butter and simmer covered about 10 minutes, then cook the remaining liquid off. Does that sound right to those of you who know what you're doing?
