Green Beans are a favorite of mine in the summer.  Fresh green beans from the garden are the absolute best.  While other vegetables haven’t fared well in my garden, the green beans did very well.

I crave green beans cooked the way my Mother taught me,  sans the Cast Iron Dutch Oven. Great memories…great flavor.

Slow Cooked Green Beans with Bacon

Fresh green beans, cleaned and snapped
chopped onion (optional)
4 to 6 slices bacon, chopped
garlic salt
2 cups water

1. Saute bacon and onion in heavy pan/skillet and cook until most of the bacon drippings have cooked out of the bacon. Drain most of the bacon drippings off.

2. Add green beans and about 2 cups water. Cover and cook on very low heat for a couple of hours and season generously with garlic salt.
