  • Reviews

  • “Sounds wonderful! But, where’s the GARLIC?!?!It’s posted in the “garlic” section! I will try, but will ADD garlic!!”

  • “I’ve always put sugar in my green beans but never used brown sugar, so I was intrigued by this. I didn’t use the full 1/2 cup of brown sugar and they were still too sweet for me (candied green beans is the best description I can come up with).I think the servings are off too.There’s no way I can get 8 servings out of a 14.5-ounce can of green beans at my house.These were ok but I don’t think I’ll be making again.Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.”

  • “Sweet and savory beans.Wanted to, and did,follow the recipe as written, but next time I’ll use fresh green beans. I don’t see why you can’t accomplish the cooking process on top of the stove in less than 20 minutes.”
