   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/4   c            Water
      3/4   c            White Vinegar
    2       tb           Sugar
    1       tb           Crushed Mustard Seeds
    4       md           Garlic Cloves, Thinly Sliced
    3                    Bay Leaves
    1 1/2   ts           Salt

    1       lb           Trimmed Green Beans
 
   Zydeco Green Beans is actually a redundancy.  The
   exuberant music of Louisiana’s black French-speaking
   Creoles is called zydeco, an idiomatic phonetic
   version of les haricots, French for snap beans.  Serve
   these green beans as a relish, or as “stirrers” for
   Bloody Marys.
   ~------------------------------------------------------
   ~----------------- In a large saucepan, stir together
   the water, vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, garlic, bay
   leaves, salt and Tabasco sauce.  Bring to a boil,
   reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes.  Add
   the beans.  Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until
   tender-crisp.  Arrange the beans in a shallow dish and
   cover them completely with the vinegar mixture.  Cover
   and refrigerate overnight.  Serve cold.
