FAQs about French green beans  

String bean is another name for green beans. They are often called that due to the strings you find along the membrane. However, you see these less frequently, so most green beans are stringless these days. Since they are the same as green beans, string beans would be longer and larger than French green beans. 

Cutting French green beans is done in the same manner as for regular green beans. Start by washing your beans under cool tap water in a colander. Make sure to clean off all the dirt. Toss them to shake off excess water. Put a small handful of green beans on a cutting board and line up the tips. Carefully chop the tips, avoiding your fingers. To trim the bottom ends, repeat the process and line the beans at the bottom end. Transfer them to a pot or bowl. Repeat the process with the next handful of beans, trimming the entire batch. 

Boiling French green beans is a popular cooking method, but you can also cook them in the microwave. The best option is to steam them in the microwave. Start by putting the beans in a microwave-safe bowl with about two tablespoons of water. Place a lid or plate on top. The idea is to trap the steam inside the bowl. Start by cooking them for one minute 30 seconds. Be careful when removing the lid or plate as the steam will escape. There should be added water in the bowl from the beans now. If not, add a little more water as you will cook them for another minute.
