1 c Sugar, granulated
2/3 c Cornstarch

Rub the beans to remove the hulls, rinse well and pour them off. Cook with 1 cup water until the beans are done and the water evaporated.

Stir well to make a smooth mixture. Pour into a preheated greased baking dish 8 inches in diameter and 3 inches in depth. Bake uncovered in a medium oven (350^F) until golden brown (about 1 hour).:
