Green Beans with Cranberry-Balsamic Glaze
  • 2pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2tablespoons butter
  • 1 sweet onion (such as Walla Walla or Vidalia), sliced
  • 4tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1medium orange, zested and juiced
  • 2tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3tablespoons tangerine-pomegranate juice (such as PomWonderful), or a blend of cranberry and orange juices
  1. Steam green beans until fork-tender, 5 minutes for small beans, as much as 15 minutes for larger beans. If making ahead, drain and store in cold water.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter; add onions and cook over low heat until translucent. Turn up heat slightly and caramelize onions until golden, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add dried cranberries, orange zest, orange juice, vinegar, and tangerine-pomegranate juice. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Just before serving, add beans; toss to coat and heat through.
