“A recipe I found on the floor of a department store while shopping. The Mcllhenny Company, they of celebrated Tabasco fame, included for promotion a free recipe with the purchase of a men's necktie. I have been making this every Thanksgiving for close to ten years now. Can be made vegetarian with the use of vegie soysage or "facon."”

Directions

  1. Steam the green beans until just done but still maintaining their bright green color. Drain. Keep warm.
  2. In the meantime, in a small pan over medium-high heat cook the salt pork or bacon until crisp. Reserve the fat. (If using vegetarian bacon, you'll need to add a bit of oil to the pan for frying.).
  3. Reduce heat, add the minced celery stalks and cook about 2 minutes; adding the garlic and cooking another minute longer. Stir in vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar and TABASCO sauce. Heat through.
  4. Remove from heat; stir in celery leaves.
  5. Toss with beans to coat. Season with salt and pepper and adjust seasonings if necessary.
