    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    I thoroughly enjoy young, fresh string beans. They are best when used within 3 to 7 days after picking, but best when freshly picked. I also love mushrooms and combined them with the string beans to make a tasty meal combination. Many years ago, we grew different varieties of beans and my mother cooked them in different ways.

      Delicious beans. I used my kitchen scissors to snip the ends of the beans, added some onions sauteed with the mushrooms, and a clove of minced garlic. Served with fried pork chops and mashed potatoes.

      I made this exactly as directed, and the family loved it!! EVERYONE said, hey, nice beans, mom! and I could have made twice as many! Although one could add onion, fresh garlic, etc, it is delicious exactly like this, it took no time at all to make and was a lovely side to a meal that included brown rice, chicken and roasted pumpkin. Thanks Uncle Bill, for a great recipe!
