    Extremely easy to prepare and was a big success for Thanksgiving dinner!  -  11 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious, I used fresh green beans and put in at begining. I like mine with more vinegar and used almost a 1/4 cup. Didn't use any sausage. It brings back good childhood memories. As a bonus, it does not get easier than this.  -  09 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did the recipe as stated and then added thinly sliced celery and chopped radish greens. It was incredible. I used fresh string beans and started them at the same time as the potatoes. Thank you for the recipe  -  02 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
