Best Green Beans Ever!

This recipe using Primal Woods Pure Maple Syrup comes from friend and fellow United States Naval Academy graduate, Tom Fritz.  I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a creative cook; fortunately I know creative cooks and mixologists!  The mixture of a touch of both sweet and spicy has always appealed to me; these beans are superb!  Tom puts this at 2 of 5 on the 🌶 index.
