Just something different and totally Old Fashioned. My German Grandmother used to make this...I'm 67 so, you can guess just how old this recipe is...

At last a recipe for Green Bean Soup that tastes just as I remember my German mother-in-law making it especially for me many years ago. Unfortunately when she passed on the recipe went with her, and over the years have tried so many different recipes to try to make something similar. This recipe is not only absolutely delicious it is easy, which is very useful because by request I have already had to make it three times in the last two weeks. Thank you grannymars
