I have only liked the green beans prepared by my maternal grandmother. Of course, now that I am an adult I realized that she prepared hers with lard and bacon. Gosh, could that be the reason I loved her beans? Of course it is! Today, green beans are supposed to be cooked so they are slightly crisp, otherwise we are losing some of the health benefits. I personally, am happy watching everyone else enjoy these beans. Enjoy!
