Personal Notes:
I think this recipe is pretty close to the way Mary used to make hers. This recipe is the way my Grandma Martz always made them.
Emily has a cute story about Mary’s green beans. It goes like this:
We lived on 178th so I must have been in about 5th grade. Mom was convinced that we needed to be taking cod liver oil every day. One night at dinner, she had the bottle of cod liver oil out and little sister Jane, not knowing any better, dutifully swallowed the tablespoon of oil (which seemed as big as a ladle.) Then Mom presented it to David to swallow and he threw his arm out to protest the swig and it went into the green beans. That was Mom’s last attempt to make us take cod liver oil. Jane says that because she took the wretched stuff this is “what they mean by taking one for the team.”
