    Wow, after dinner my Mom asked for some of the leftover beans - ha! no leftovers, these disappeared, even the ones not wild about green beans ate these. <br/> So easy, so pretty and so good. I did add a touch more orange zest after draining, was cooking at my Mom's and had forgotten the bacon, beans were still great, can%u2019t wait to try with bacon bits the next time I make this recipe which is a total keeper.

    I've made this recipe for the past couple of years, Christmas and Thanksgiving. I use frozen whole green beans and just throw it all in the crockpot and cook it till I need it. The flavors are terrific! Thanks - Derf

    Enjoyable, easy and festive. I would use half the honey next time and also add the zest (or perhaps more zest) after draining, as most of it ended up washing off through the colander. Like another reviewer, I also used fresh green beans rather than frozen. I used the dried cranberries this time, which worked out fine for me. I added a bit of butter after they were done, which we enjoyed, although they did taste very good without the butter.

    This recipe was an interesting take on the same old green beans. I loved the colors, this dish is beautiful. I added 3 tbsp of some homemade cranberry sauce to the beans (actually I made Cranberries Grand Marnier, recipe #183251 from this site) and that seemed to work better than the dried cranberries, which ended up falling to the bottom of the dish. I also used fresh, steamed beans as opposed to frozen ones. The result was terrific. The salty bacon bits mixed with the sweet cranberries and the orange kick is a much more interesting way to eat green beans than the way I usually prepare them.
