How do you keep green beans crispy?

Green beans should be stored in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator, unwashed. When storage, if they arrive in a bag, keep them in the bag. Transfer them to reusable storage or plastic bag before storing them in the fridge if they come in a tiny berry box from the market.

The beans should keep for up to a week if properly stored. If the beans get particularly brown or slimy, they have gone rotten.

You must blanch them rather than cook them. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Fill a dish with cold water (tap water is OK) and ice to make an ice bath. Cook the raw trimmed green beans in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Place the green beans in an ice bath for 4–5 minutes.

The secret to preserving the brilliant green color of the beans, no matter how you cook them, is to simmer them for a short period. They only require seven minutes to reach crisp-tender perfection.

The air-fryer method, on the other hand, requires very little oil. To obtain incredibly crispy, properly cooked, and tender green beans, simply toss the beans with a tiny bit of oil.
