Thanksgiving 2010 - Another Beanie Reveal

John Curtas delves into family history to discover the real story behind Grandma Schroader's Sour Beans.


2 cans green beans, heated up
1/4 lb. Bacon

Fry and crumble bacon

Bring to a boil:
1/4 cup vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
chopped onion

Pour over green beans
Garnish with as much crumbled bacon as your cardiologist allows.
Serve hot, cold or any temperature in between.

These beans co-exist wonderfully with any Thanksgiving dinner, and taste even better the next day. I promise - if you serve them once, you'll serve them every year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
