When I was a kid we'd really have to string the beans on each side of the beans. Now beans do not have string anymore. Yet, when you do peas, for example, then you have to open on the side where there is a ridge. That's where you have to put your your thumb and open them this way. There is different size in the pod usually. And then you run them This way. Sometimes a snow pea or snap pea are string. So you start, not on the side of the flower here, but on the other side and go down. You see. And then you twist around, break it on the other side and go down on the other side.
