1/4 cup sherry
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Cranberry Classic™ Fruit Drink
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup blanched almonds, toasted**
285 grams fresh or frozen green beans
1 small onion, sliced
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon cumin seed*
1 teaspoon curry powder

If using fresh green beans, cook in salted boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes or until just tender. Drain; rinse in cold water.

Combine onion, water and salt in large fry pan. Cook over medium-high heat until water evaporates. Add beans, garlic, butter, cumin and curry powder; stir to coat beans. Stir in dried cranberries, sherry, juice cocktail and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until liquid evaporates and mixture is heated through. Sprinkle with almonds.

Makes 6 servings.

*If desired, lightly toast cumin seed in small fry pan and pound with mortar and pestle to bring out flavor.

**To toast almonds, cook in small nonstick fry pan over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Toasted salted almonds can be substituted.
