ready to eat fresh or pickle or grill, yes grill We have been grilling every night around here and I think we have accidentally started onto a Paleo diet of sorts. So many veggies go on the grill these days, including green beans! Oil them and try not to loose them to the fire, they don't take long to cook. It is possible and worth the effort!!
