Food and mealtimes when everyone gathers around the table is an important part of Amish family life. Having silent prayer before and after every meal keeps the family together for the duration since no one would have dreamt of leaving before the last prayer. For us, most meals were enjoyed leisurely with lots of chatter and laughter mixed in.
Starting today I will be sharing a recipe every week that I used to enjoy while I was growing up. Green beans were our favorite vegetable to eat during the winter months and we always prepared them like this:
Fried Green Beans
4 Tbsp butter
15 saltine crackers
1 can green beans (drained)
Melt butter in a skillet and lightly crumble crackers into it. Stir until evenly coated with butter and nicely golden colored. Add green beans and flip and stir until heated through. Serve and enjoy!
