Episcopal Green Beans

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

This is an unusual recipe from Flavors, the San Antonio Junior League cookbook. The description says that they were served every year at the Thanksgiving dinner at the Episcopal church in Brenham, Texas. My father-in-law, who never lets a vegetable cross his lips, loves this twangy recipe. I'm not a canned green bean kind of person, but I like these.

I enjoyed these, but I think the butter is not something I care for on green beans, and the mustard was slightly overpowering. I might try these again without the butter, and with just the liquid from the beans, and slightly less butter.
