Sunday Supper Suggestion, Southern Green Beans

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Green beans are in our freezer for use this winter. Having grown in our garden this summer. I have never been a big fan of green beans, until growing our own. There is something satisfying about cooking what you grow. There is a lot we have learned about growing what you will cook.....

Southern Green Beans, with Potatoes and Bacon
Southern Green Beans

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  (you can also use 1/4 c chopped onion)
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 oven 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.

Serve hot.
