Is it better to snap or cut green beans?

It depends what you want to do with them! You can snap off the stem end of the green bean before cooking. Sometimes green beans come like that already but its fresher to do it yourself. On the other hand, you can line up the beans on a flat surface and slice off all the stems at the same time.Fabulous Green Bean Recipes
