      Oh, this is it! This is definitely the way my Mom and my Nana used to cook green beans! I never had their exact recipe, so I always tried to guess...But this is IT! (I think I've been shorting the amount of butter all this time...) Thank you so much for posting this, Bullwinkle! It's a keeper for me!! :)
