Hi Binnur,

I love borulce and we make it all the time during the summer months in Turkey but I don't know where I can find them in the U.S.? I am not sure if they would be available at the local supermarkets?

Hi,
You'd better check the Chinese super market. I hope there is one in your neighborhood:)

A healthy salad. Do you also shave both sides like you would for flat beans or is it just enough to trim the ends?

Hi,
The long beans don't need to be shaved on the sides, just trim the ends:)
