"I made this recipe for the first time on Thanksgiving of 2011 and then again on Christmas 2011, I have made it at different times during this year and am getting ready to make it again for Christmas 2012! I absolutely love it! The tart taste of the apple cider vinegar is what I love the most about it. It is a favorite side at our house!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2010

"i was really looking forward to this recipe because i love garden fresh green beans. my dad loved them but my boyfriend and i thought they were just OK. i feel that they tasted to much like the cider vinegar and were too sour for me. the green beans cooked very well but the flavor was not what i expected. if you are fan of vinegar then you will like this recipe but it is still worth trying. i might still make it again for my dad."
