Recipe by chilepepper1231

Tried this one to get my 5 year old to eat more vegetables. Quite easy and an alternative to just plain old beans out of a can. Of course fresh green beans can be substituted.

This was just a little too sweet and sour for our tastes. We thought the vinegar and sugar totally overwhelmed the taste of the green beans. If I make this again, I'll cut down on the amounts of sugar and vinegar.
