How good is this - it had me hunting though my reviews - my cookbooks and finally found the well used copy in my recipe drawer with last seasons recipe finds. Knew I loved bean soups fresh and dried but this is the first recipe for cream of green bean I've made or tasted. Before I do anything else taking time to review - can't chance losing this one! Made as posted, it is one terific soup using either the dried savory or the fresh snipped in. One of the benefits of reviewing - the recipe is always there when you need it! Thank you, look forward to making pots of creamed green bean soup again this summer.
