Maple-Mustard Green Beans

Notes: Up to 2 days ahead, make and chill maple-mustard sauce. One day ahead, cook beans; drain and immerse at once in ice water until cold. Drain again, wrap airtight, and chill. To reheat, immerse beans in boiling water to cover, remove from heat and let stand about 1 1/2 minutes, then drain. Or put beans in a microwave-safe bowl and reheat, uncovered, in a microwave oven at full power (100%) until steaming, 2 to 4 minutes.
