Long Beans

Chinatown has pristine long beans this time of year. When they’re fresh they’re blemish free and feel a little limp. There are two varieties: light and dark green. My mother always preferred the dark green for stir-frying saying they were crisper. Long beans are the only “neutral” vegetable that’s neither yin nor yang.
