    I am wondering if anyone can help... About 5 years ago I was sitting in a hotel bar in San Francisco and ordered a bloody mary. Instead of the usual celery, there was a hardy green bean that was pickled in jalapeno juice. I would love to find these beans, the thing that made them different is that they were somewhat furry/fuzzy on the outside and very crisp. Any ideas? If I can find fresh ones, I'd be happy to try and make them myself. [​IMG]

    Do you remember what hotel bar that was? It would be easy to call up the hotel from where I'm at...

    You eat edamames in the shell? Hogue Farms does commercial pickled green beans, aren't some of the Italian beans furry, I think so.

    It was not edamame, I have a farmer friend who supplies me with the plant so I can pick off the beans myself, so I know they are too small for what I had previously.

    These were 7-9 inches long. If italian beans are fuzzy, I would like to know what they are called and info on sources.
