Green Beans with Summer Savory

1 lb. fresh, young green beans, trimmed
2 TBS unsalted butter
1 TBS finely chopped fresh summer savory, or 2 tsp. dried savory
fresh ground black pepper

Directions: Bring a large pot of water to full boil. Add a generous dash of salt and green beans and cook on high heat uncovered for 6-8 minutes, depending on the size and freshness of the beans. They should be tender but still crisp. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain again and keep cool until you are ready to eat them. For final preparation, melt butter in a saucepan. Add savory and beans. Cook for 1-2 minutes and serve hot, seasoned with pepper, and salt if necessary.
