      A nice change of pace that fancies up green beans (I steamed mine). The mace gives a nice hint of flavour to it and the novelty of water chestnuts is a treat.

      I agree with you, Bergy....those water chestnuts really do jazz up many veggies. This a great example. I loved the bit of mace and the crunchiness of the water chestnuts mixed with the green beans. I had almost 1 1/2 lbs of beans, but kept all the other amounts the same. These will be a part of my holiday table! Thanx for posting!
