We love these sweet smoky green beans, infused with bacon fat and flavor. Best to get fresh beans from your local sources; Farmer’s Market, co-op, or grow your own. The sooner their cooked the better. The organic bacon can be hard to find, but I’m thinking the more we buy it the more we’ll get, again fresh and local is best and uncured.
Fresh Organic Green Beans with Organic Bacon
- Fresh green beans
- Organic bacon 1/2 strip for each 2 cups of uncooked beans
- Unrefined sea salt
- Filtered water
Clean and remove strings from beans. Cook bacon in pan the beans will cook in. Remove bacon when done and save, cook beans in the bacon fat with a little salt and water. Cook on medium covered with a lid, 15-25 minutes, until tender, but still bright green. Remove lid and turn burner on high. The idea here is to char the beans, pretty much the same as you would meat on a BBQ grill. Keep a close watch, and turn them a lot. When they look like in the picture, but them in a serving bowl, and top with crumbled bacon. Enjoy!
