Yield: about 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds string beans
  • salted water
  • sprigs summer savory (about 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or shortening
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon superfine flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • bouillon cube

Instructions:

In a saucepan cook string beans and summer savory; add enough salted water to barely cover. In a separate pan, melt butter; brown onion and garlic. Stir in flour; add sugar and vinegar. Slowly stir in water from the cooked beans (about 1 cup) to make sauce. Add bouillon cube and drained beans; save extra water to thin the sauce if needed.
