Green beans with garlic chips.

Something new and exciting out of my kitchen last night. Our little excursion to the Farmer’s Market had some effect on our cooking and we are trying something new with the green beans that we just purchased.

I like slow cooked and glazed  onion and adding  vinegar while cooking is now a staple in our kitchen. Having so many different vinegars to choose from, seven to be exact, I settled with two : white balsamic and apple cider, and waited out the results. Different and quite tasty. Enjoyed the green beans warm last night as well as cold today for lunch as a salad.
