    DrGaellon's Note:

    My sister wanted something with green beans that wasn't green bean and mushroom casserole. I knocked this together after being inspired by several other recipes on here. Cook's Illustrated has noted that reducing supermarket balsamic vinegar with a bit of sugar can yield something that passes for a high-quality balsamic, so I took advantage of that idea here.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, combine orange juice, balsamic vinegar, orange zest and ginger. Simmer over medium heat until syrupy and reduced by half. (If you have access to a really good-quality, syrupy, aged balsamic vinegar, reduce the orange juice by half with the zest and ginger, then add 1-2 tbsp of the good vinegar off heat.).
    2. 2
      In a small, dry skillet, toast almonds over medium-low heat until lightly browned. Stir very often to prevent burning. As soon as you begin to smell nuts, pour out onto a sheet pan or plate and spread out to cool.
    3. 3
      Steam or microwave green beans until tender-crisp. Toss green beans and cranberries with glaze until coated. Sprinkle with almonds and serve.
