I love that we have the Farmer’s Market! It’s so great to have fresh garden produce for those of us who don’t have the space or the physical ability to have a garden. We do manage to have two tomato plants and several kinds of herbs that supply us with all of tomatoes we can eat and some to share. I love the green beans, beets zucchini and other veggies that the market provides for us, now we are waiting for the sweet corn. Today I am sharing a green bean recipe, I hope that you will enjoy!
Green Beans Amandine:
1 1/2 pounds green beans, ends snapped
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 small garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons dry sherry or sherry vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Bring a large saucepan of generously salted water to a rolling boil, add the green beans and cook until al dente’, 6-8 minutes. Drain thoroughly and set aside.
Return the saucepan to medium heat, melt the butter then add the garlic and saute’ until softened , about 30 seconds. Whisk in the brown sugar, sherry and cider vinegar. Add the green beans and toss until well coated.

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
