We were successful with green beans last year and again this year. However we did not grow the same beans this year. This year we grew tri-colored beans. They are beautiful as well as tasty. You will see that once cooked, magically the beans are all the same color.
Southern Green Beans
adapted from: Lost Recipes, meals to share with family and friends
3-4 slices of bacon - diced
2-3 scallions - cut into 1 inch pieces
1 pound green beans - snap the end and pull the string, then snap into 1 inch lengths
salt and pepper to taste
1 c water
3 medium potatoes, peeled (if desired) and diced
Heat a dutch or heavy bottom pan over medium heat, add bacon and scallions. Cook until lightly browned. Remove excess bacon fat.
Add green beans, salt and pepper and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
Add potatoes, stir to mix. Cover and cook additional 30 minutes.
Check once or twice to make sure the green beans have not cooked dry. Remove cover, boil down excess pan juices if desired, taking care not to scorch.
As always, thanks for taking a minute to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
