Every summer, Pop raises green beans and I love them. I'm always on the lookout for other ways to fix them in place of cooking them with bacon until soft, even though that is my favorite. Gotta have something different every once in a while. Lemon goes so well with green beans and this recipe sounded like a wonderful way to use fresh green beans. Source: First Magazine
