    John DOH's Note:

    An explanation of how you can get a lot more from simple ingredients by adding a "pairing" flavour. This one goes exceptionally well when served as a "side" to roast pork. Check your beans that they feel "crisp" and not "leathery" (Do they "snap" easily, and leak a bit of juice? If not, don't buy them)

    1. 1
      Clean the beans, "tip and toe" them, and cut to 1" lengths.
    2. 2
      Boil salted water in a pot and add the almond extract when boiling.
    3. 3
      Place the beans and almond slivers in a steaming basket and cook until just about done (still some "crunch" left in the bean, but not chewy).

      Excellent! What a great way to make fresh green beans something really special. Almond extract? Who knew? What a great addition that really revs up the almond flavor! Thanks John!

      Loved the beans - the few drops of almond extract in the water gives that extra bit of flavor - I used toasted almonds and they gave a mellow almond taste. Do not over cook your beans. I cut the recipe back to 2 sevings with no problem Thanks John for posting the recipe
