These Southern green beans are flavored with bacon and salt. You could also add onions and potatoes if you desire.
3 lb Green beans, fresh
6 Bacon slices
1. Wash beans, snip off ends. Drop into salted boiling water, reduce
heat and cook until barely tender. Turn out into a colander and
immediately rinse under cold water to stop cooking process.
2. Cook the bacon over low heat in a deep heavy pot until crisp. Remove bacon, drain on paper toweling, and crumble.
3. Pour off and discard all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat from pot. When ready to serve, heat bacon fat, add beans, and fork-stir until heated. Stir in crumbled bacon and serve at once.
