My Grandma was visiting and was longing for her mothers mustard bean pickle recipe. I quickly sign into recipezaar and... tah-dah! We went right out to the market and bought the ingedients and made a batch. We had some for supper tonight and they were so tasty! We were worried when we tasted the sauce that it would taste like there was too much vinager, but once the beans cooled, it was the perfect amount of vinager! Thank you for the recipe - you've given my grandmother a taste of her childhood and you've given me my great-grandma's recipe! :)
