Apricot preserves lend a sweet flavor to tender green beans, while cayenne pepper gives this side a slight kick. Lisa Ruehlow of Blaine, Minnesota shares the recipe.
- 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
- 3 tablespoons peach preserves
- Dash cayenne pepper
- Place beans in a steamer basket; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender.
- In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine preserves and cayenne. Cook, uncovered, on high for 30 seconds or until preserves are melted. Transfer beans to a serving bowl; add peach mixture and toss to coat. Yield: 2 servings.
