Beans, Beans, Good for the Heart

I'm still reeling from a nasty stomach virus. On the up side, I lost three pounds in a day. I did want to share a little something with you though. I missed you all yesterday.

This is a recipe I found in Meta Given's Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking. Modern, by way of 1945. It's a great little set to have if you can find it. Packed full of recipes on just about every food, with basic ways of cooking to more elegant recipes.

Fresh Green Beans

1 1/2 lb fresh green beans
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 c. melted butter
5 small red potatoes, optional

Wash green beans in cold water. Snap ends. Place in a large pot of boiling salted water (1 tsp. to 1 qt water) along with potatoes, if desired. Cook uncovered until desired tenderness, 20-30 minutes. Drain; add sugar and butter. Stir and heat through.
