Beans, Peas, and Potatoes


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen peas
  • 5 or 6 small new potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


Place green beans in a covered pot with a scant 2 inches of water, and cook over medium heat until beans are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes. Add peas; cook slowly for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and cook about 8 minutes more, or until potatoes are just done. By this time almost all water should be cooked away; add extra only if necessary to prevent burning. When vegetables are cooked, add regular or evaporated milk just to cover, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat thoroughly but don't boil.

    This sounds like something my grandmother would have made. Delicious.

    This recipe for Almanac Date Squares was one I used years ago and lost and could not remember the exact measurements. To add a little more zing add a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice into the filling, it makes a world of difference.
