The Inglenook Cook Book (1906)
String and break green beans in small pieces, cook in salted water until tender; pour off the water, in which they were cooked.
To 1/2 gallon of beans add 1 teacupful of sweet cream or rich milk, butter the size of a hulled walnut.
Canned beans are as nice cooked in this way as green beans.
