“Our family has known for decades, that if you have a canker(mouth)sore, you eat 1/2 can of green beans and the canker will be gone the following day. A prescribed medication, recently, rendered my mouth full of cankers and too sore to even chew canned green beans. DIL suggested putting the canned green beans in my Bullet blender (best invention in years).My thought was, baby food. Okay! DH suggested soup! Thus this tasty recipe was born only an hour ago. I am waiting to see what the Zaar-ist comunity will add to it. Tabasco? Bacon? A grilled cheese sandwich? I dedicate this recipe to my DIL, Shar.”
