Good For The Soul Green Beans

Sherri Williams


When I was growing up, there was not a Sunday or holiday that you would not find some type of green veggie on the table. They were always cooked for at least an hour. This long process of cooking is what we southerners love to call SOULFOOD. These string beans were one of my favorites. I've added some additional goodies just because... These are just in time for the holidays. I hope that you will try these out on your family and friends. Cooking with Passion, sw :)
