Green Beans with Pasture Butter and Toasted Almonds

-Tip and tail 1 pound green beans.

-Steam over high heat for about 5-6 minutes (they should still be crisp when done).

-Drain and spread hot beans out on a dishtowel to dry (they’ll continue to cook and dry from the retained heat).

-Melt 2 TBS pasture or cultured butter in a sauté pan.

-Add ¼ cup slivered almonds and cook for about 1 minute over medium heat.

-Add the beans and toss together.

-Sprinkle with sea salt and serve warm.
