I trust all is well for you. I grew up in Atlanta in the 1970ís where
we had many Morrisonís Cafeterias. They were so good, and Iím very
thankful you already have a solid Morrisonís recipe database. Can you
locate their cooked green beans recipe ? I assume itís canned green
beans flavored with pork, salt and some kind of seasoning, but Iím
at a loss how to get that exact taste thatís in my memory. I really
appreciate what you do, we have communicated before years ago.
Morrison's probably used ordinary food service canned green beans, but my old copy of the kitchen manual mentions a variety
of green beans called "Blue Lake".
James, a former Morrison's manager, says this:
Three cans of beans.
"The beans were drained (first time) and the liquid was replaced with†water,
and drained a second time and then the water replaced. Then 2 oz. of bacon
base was added along with a whole onion, peeled and quartered, and a teaspoon
of black pepper.† The beans were then brought to a boil, the heat lowered and
simmered for about an hour. Some managers actually put a couple of slices of
bacon in the pot."
If you can't find "bacon base", Amazon has it in larger quantities and a bit on the expensive side.
