Southern Style Green Beans


6-8 slices bacon
2-3 lbs. fresh green beans
4-6 cups water
2 tsp. salt

Fry the bacon until almost crisp and reserve the drippings. Put the beans and water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Dice the bacon and add to the beans along with the salt and 2-3 tbsp. of bacon drippings. Reduce heat and let simmer for a couple of hours. Add more water if needed.

Tip: You can also cook the green beans in the crockpot (low/4-6 hours or high/2-3 hours), but you would only use 1 cup of water.
