This recipe can make anyone like green beans. i also steam the beans or cook them in the microwave for a few minutes. This just insures that your beans are cooked all the way through. I grew up with this recipe and it was always a favorite in our house and still is. If Dotty2 would not have posted it i definitly would have.
Easy and very different! The only 'extra' thing I did was to steam the fresh beans for ten minutes, first, DH does not like them crunchy. Otherwise a rich and tasty way to serve beans, that everyone really enjoyed, the mix of sweet and tangy is just right. Thanks for a great recipe, Dotty! Made for Aussie swap#24, January 09
