This is the time of the year when I start looking to see what I have too much of in the freezer and pantry from the summer canning. It seems I may have gone a little crazy with the tomatoes and green beans, among other things.
Because I used canned and frozen doesn't mean you can't use fresh.
Green Beans With Tomatoes
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 small clove garlic, minced
3 pounds green beans, cooked
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped, I used 1 pint of my canned, drained
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
In a large skillet melt the butter. Add the onions and saute' for 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and heat thoroughly. Toss lightly and serve.
