My son and I really enjoyed this side dish. He lived in Germany for a few months while in school, and always talked about his host family's cooking. "Oma" would prepare a similar dish. We included this with schnitzel, spaetzle, and black forest cake for our annual German dinner. Thanks for helping us bring back great memories for my son.

This was good and easy to make. I did cut back on the sugar a bit and used Splenda (as that is all I buy). I also used regular green beans as that it all I had. Other then that, I followed the recipe. This was a nice side dish.

This is a great side dish for any the bacon and you can control the level of sweetness to your liking. I cut mine to 1/4 cup for Cooking Club night.
