For those of us who love green beans but didn't get any fresh ones preserved:

1-2 cans cut or french-filleted Green Beans
Olive Oil
Jane's Crazy Mixed-up Salt (in spice section of grocery store, sometimes hard to find but worth the hunt)
Dill Weed
Minced Garlic
Summer Savory (optional)
1 thinly sliced onion (optional - it's quicker and easier to omit the onion, but it tastes lots better with it)

Pour enough olive oil in skillet to cover bottom. Sauté very thinly sliced onion until soft and somewhat brown. Add beans. Season with Jane's, a dash or two of dill, a tablespoon or so of minced garlic and a shake or two of summer savory. Mix well. Reduce heat to low and let heat through stirring occasionally until rest of meal is ready.
