Personal Notes:
I remember Grandma O making these beans. When I married Ben and asked what he loved to eat, he stated some kind of green bean my mom used to make and cook all day. I guessed at the recipe from memories of Grandma O and got it right on the first try. I like to think she was guiding my hand.
