GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Target Archer Farms.
Your standard steam-in-the-bag bean goes upscale with these haricots verts--like beauties. They maintained their flavor and texture, despite being frozen. Grassy, crunchy, and crisp, they're the perfect go-to for the time-strapped cook.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers.
They maintained their bright kelly-green hue throughout the steaming process, and their sweet, earthy flavor wasn't lost in a waxy shell.
