      The fresh green beans are so tasty right now, and this recipe was just what I was looking for. Comforting and delicious, this was a real hit with the whole bunch! We loved them so much! Flavor was great! Thanks!

      Your gram must have known my great grandmother! This is the way she made her green beans, except she didn't use just cider vinegar. We sprinkled the vinegar from homemade pepper sauce on ours! And when we were kids, we would mash the potatoes up with a fork and pour the "pot likker" over it to enjoy the wonderful juice. Thanks for posting your recipe! Brought back great memories! Made for Gimme 5 Tag Game.

      I had these many times as a child when my grandmother would make us dinner and have been looking for this recipe for years! The beans came out wonderfully flavored and so tender! They went great with our Meatloaf dinner, and now that I found this recipe I will be making them every chance I get! We loved the addition of the vinegar. Just plain yummy! DH had 3 servings, grinning at me each time too! Next time I might put in some potatoes and cook them in with the green beans. OK, now I am licking my chops! Thank you!
