2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
3 cups water
4 tablespoons Schnucks unsalted butter
1/2 (12-ounce) package refrigerated diced brown sugar cured country ham
1 tablespoon Schnucks granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Schnucks spicy brown mustard

1. In nonstick 12-inch skillet, add green beans and water; cover and heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Cook beans 4 to 5 minutes or until beans are tender-crisp. Drain beans in colander; set aside. (If desired, green beans can be prepared up to 1 day ahead before reheating. Plunge green beans in bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain thoroughly, then store in zip-tight plastic bag in refrigerator.)

2. In same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add ham and cook 7 to 10 minutes or until ham browns, breaking up pieces with side of spoon. Add sugar and cook 1 minute, stirring. Add mustard and stir until well combined. Add green beans and salt and cook until green beans are heated through, stirring to coat beans with mustard mixture.
