This had all the earmarks of a winner: I love fresh green beans. I love just about anything that’s fried. And I dipped these babies in a beer and sesame seed batter, two more things I love. But the sum just wasn’t equal to its parts. They were okay, but nothing compared to the joy of a fresh-from-the-garden bean. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I guess frying doesn’t always make things better. I’m feeling a bit disillusioned.
