Green Beans with Rosemary and Orange Marmalade

If you're looking for a side dish that's a little different for Easter dinner, may I suggest these Green Beans with Rosemary and Orange Marmalade. You could use fresh beans, or frozen beans as I did. If dinner is extra fancy, I'd go with fresh long un-cut beans and nice thin slices of garlic:@) What's different is, the garlic simply gets boiled in the water we cook the beans in, no sauteing and chance of over browning or burning. And look at that pretty white color! In a perfect world, we'd add just enough water to cook the beans and have it evaporate so none of the flavor gets poured out.

Everything in this recipe works well together, my only possible suggestion, I ~might~ try it next time with some thin onion slices too.
I used 12 oz of frozen green beans and cut the rest of the recipe down to about 1/3.
Well... I did still use a good size clove of garlic:@)

I mentioned previously that I was trying to keep my rosemary alive over winter...
It's hanging in there! Also tossed a 25¢ pack of spinach seeds around the outside of the planter and they are up too!
Life is good😊

  1. Wow Lynn, what a flavor combo! I've got to try this, garlic, rosemary and orange marmalade, all my favs!

  2. This dish sounds really interesting Lynn and I would never think to add orange marmalade to it. I bet it tastes delicious!
