      Shirleen, FANTASTIC, reminded of way back when. 1930's and up. You must remeber beans of any kind were called "man fruit" when I was a kid. I made these today as written. The Women folk when I was a kid used Lard instead of butter or Marjorine ( it wasn't invented yet) also, there was always a little Bacon thrown in. I will try that the next time BUT, this is great. Thanks a bunch. Firehouse cook aka Cap'n Jack
