 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         haricots verts -- thin french green
                         -- beans
    2      tablespoons   unsalted butter
 In a kettle of boiling salted water boil the haricots verts for 4 to 6 minutes,
  or until they are crisp-tender, drain them, and plunge them into a bowl of ice
  and cold water to stop the cooking.  Drain the beans again and pat them dry.  
 The beans may be prepared up to this point 1 day in advance and kept wrapped in
  dampened paper towels in a plastic bag and chilled.  Just before serving, in a
  large skillet melt the butter over moderately high heat and in it toss the har
 icots verts until they are heated through.  Season the haricots verts with salt
  and pepper.
