Break the tender pods into several pieces, and boil them in slightly salted water. To 3 quarts of beans add 1 small onion. When the beans are nearly done, allow the water to boil away, leaving the beans dry, then season with pepper, salt and butter. Stir into the beans 2 potatoes that have been thoroughly mashed, and add 1 cup of hot, thick cream.
