Tangy Buttered Green Beans Recipe

Years ago, my mother helped assemble a church cookbook, and this recipe was submitted by a family friend. Mom tried it on husband and kids and we all liked it. These ingredients work well with any type of green bean...frozen, canned or fresh. —Beth Allard Belmont, New Hampshire
