These aren't bad, but you really have to like very well cooked canned green beans. They have the slow cooked flavor of southern-style green beans and they're supposedly a copycat of the beans served at Cracker Barrel restaurants. It's been too many years since I've eaten at the Cracker Barrel to remember. I was expecting them to come out quite salty but the didn't. I used a 2-quart pot as directed in the recipe, but it was very full. I recommend using a 3-quart pot instead.
