An heirloom variety that is the color of a pale sun with a snappy and extremely succulent texture and very sweet of-the-earth flavor. Yellow wax beans are slender, long and uniform in shape. Varying from light to deep yellow, this wax bean has a thinner, velvety skin and a more subtle flavor than the common green bean.
Yellow wax beans provide a good source of vitamin C, iron and immunity-boosting folate. One-half cup cooked beans contains about 22 calories.
Add the yellow wax bean's clean taste and crisp texture to stir-fries, soups, stews and casseroles. Steam, braise, bake, sauté or microwave. Whatever cooking method chosen, cook fresh beans as little as possible to maintain texture. For extended enjoyment throughout the year, can or pickle blanched beans with fragrant spices. To store, wrap in plastic; refrigerate in crisper drawer. Use within one week for optimum quality and taste.
The original version of this particular bean grew in the tropical climate of Central and South America. "Wax" has become a common term and is used in referring to any yellow bean whether it is waxy or not. True wax bean types actually do have a waxy texture and feel. Growing in both tropical and temperate areas, wax beans prefer at least a fifty-day frost-free growing time.
