Ingredients:  
3 lbs. garden fresh green beans
2 quarts of water
3 T butter
salt & pepper to taste
1 complete box of SOS pads

Directions:
Directions:
Spend 2 hrs. washing, stringing, & breaking beans while watching TV. Double wash broken beans. Place beans in your best large cooking pot. Cover beans with water. Add 2 tsp. salt & 2 pats of butter. Turn stove unit on high (extra high if possible). Bring beans to a hard boil. Leave the beans cooking while you give yourself a break. Go sit on your couch & watch TV- take a nap. Don't worry about using your kitchen timer. The beans will be perfectly blackened at the sound of your smoke alarm. Now you will need to remove the batteries from your smoke alarm to stop the shrill sound. Using 2 oven mitts carefully remove the pot from the stove and sit it on the front or back porch. Gently remove the lid allowing the smoke to escape. Stand on you porch with your hands on your hips & shake your head until the smoke clears. Expletives are optional at this point. Carry the beans back to the kitchen and salvage as much of the top layers of beans as possible. While swearing to yourself that you will never cook fresh beans again, empty the burnt beans into the disposal or garbage. Place bean pot in the sink and fill with water,1/2 bottle of Dawn, 1 C Clorox, 3C vinegar, 1 box baking powder, Comet, dishwasher detergent, & Boric acid. Let soak for 10 days. Dump water and start scrubbing until you have little to no fingernails left. If the pot is still not clean run it through the dishwasher for the next 20-30 loads. If pot remains blackened, go to Wal-Mart and buy a new one. Do not put the old one in a garage sale!
