Dried Hay Beans

These beans are still made in many Mennonite families.

Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Soak dried beans in warm water for 1 hour.
  2. Cut bacon or salt pork into small cubes and fry in a Dutch oven or heavy saucepan until lightly browned. Add beans and partially cover with water. Cook until tender and most of the water is absorbed.

You can also cook fresh green beans this way.
