Personal Notes:
The first time I had green beans in the Northeast I thought I might have met the worlds worst cook! Little did I know that most of the world likes their beans lightly blanched. I've learned to appreciate both and in the interest of fairness I should mention that blanching probably preserves the most nutrients. I usually compromise by cooking them slightly longer with a couple of pieces of bacon in the water.
