In Season: Butter Beans27th May, 2015
More commonly known as Romano Green Beans, butter beans are no doubt Barbadian favourite - even, the kids are in love with them. I remember growing up as a child and my grandmother smothering these beans with butter - it was the only vegetable I would devour before the rest of my food! I'm not sure if Bajans call them butter beans due to their natural buttery consistency and flavour or if it's just because you usually lather them with butter; Nonetheless they are pretty tasty! Bursting with that crisp and fresh greenness Cheapside Market is overflowing with these beans at the moment! If you have never been make a visit, but not only for the beans - we guarantee you will love this cultural paradise!
