This was an utter fail. I wasted all the ingredients by making this. My husband daughter and I couldn t even eat it. The cloves were beyond overpowering- like you re eating a Christmas pine cone without the crunch. The result was a syrupy overly sweet mess. I feel like I ve been punked. I m sorry to be a downer but I need to let the public know!!! Read More

Update: Cut back on the sugar, and it still tastes great! Everyone enjoyed this dish. Next time I will cut back on the sugar and see how it tastes. I used fresh green beans instead of frozen. Read More
