Mary Jane's Green Beans
(tastes fresh from the can)
- 1 huge can green beans - (The $2.89 size in the bulk section of your grocery store) OR 6 or 7 - 15½ oz size cans
- 3 teaspoons brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons Jamison's Soup Base (should be w/ the chicken bullion in the grocery store)
- 1 medium onion, peeled
- ¼ - ½ cup liquid shortening (like Wesson, Crisco, Olive Oil or Canola)
You also might need a little more brown sugar and soup base for this many beans. If you don't have Jamison's soup base, try beef bullion, but I think it tastes better with the soup base.
Making the beans this way, makes them taste fresh and they always get eaten up when I cook them for dinners or a carry-in! I get lots of requests for this recipe. My mother in law taught me how to do this over the years.
