Recipe by Chef Garlic

This is based off of a recipe I found for Sweet and Sour Green Beans. Now, it is the most requested dish for all family functions from Christmas, to Mother's Day. They loose something when microwaved to reheat. Also, I usually use a disposable baking pan, since you do bake them once, and then bake the leftovers, if you are lucky enough to have any! But, in recent months, I have found my Crock Pot, on low, is a good alternative to heating up the oven.
