method

1. Put the beans into a pan with the stock and bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. The beans should be tender but still a little firm.

2. Melt the butter in a large deep frying pan and cook the vegetables a few at a time until golden.

3. Add the vegetables to the beans and stock. Add the cider and thyme, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes, or until the beans and vegetables are tender.

4. Blend the cornflour to a paste with a little cold water and stir into the pan. Bring to the boil, stirring and cook until thickened. Adjust the seasoning before serving.
