How to trim green beans:

Trimming green beans is pretty easy.  Place the beans on a cutting board with the stems lined up.  Using a knife, cut across the top of all the beans until the stems are removed.  Alternately, you may be able to purchase green beans that have already been washed and trimmed at the store.
