1. Preparing Butter Beans short Overview…

  • After removing the ends, cook the beans in boiling salted water until al dente and then in ice water.
  • The green colour of the bean is retained by the rapid cooling.
  • Foam the butter in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Then lightly brown and pass through a fine sieve. You need a stainless steel hair sieve because the butter is very hot.
  • The browned butter is also called nut butter and is preferred in star restaurants.
  • Nut butter makes a special dish out of your beans!
  • Just before serving, swivel the blanched beans in the nut butter and heat them up.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Butter beans are an evergreen side dish and go well with various dishes such as German pot roast, roast lamb and steak.

  5. Foam the butter in a saucepan. I always do this with two packets of butter, so I have pure butterfat or ghee or browned nut butter in stock.

Recipe Notes

The preparation of homemade nut butter should be done every two weeks. I then fill my homemade, tanned ghee into a screw glass and put the clarified butter in the fridge. So I always have the delicious fat at hand.
