Dried Hay Beans

RG

These beans are still made by many Mennonite families.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups dried green string beans
  • 1/4 pound bacon or salt pork
  • Dash of pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Water to cover

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.
  3. 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.
