    Beautiful Green Beans and nothing tastes better than home-canned. I can eat them right out of the can. I, too, have a 50+ year old canner. It belonged to my grandmother’s oldest sister who died at age 96. Many wonderful memories of my grand aunts (four in all) and all the food they coud cook up….BBB
