At the Cottage we love to grow our own food as much as possible and one thing we grow is heirloom green beans.

This variety is called Cherokee Trail of Tears and they are such a beautiful bean and very tasty.
Since we grow our beans we do a lot of canning. This is what we do to prepare our pre-canned beans.You can do the same with freezer beans from the market, just make sure to simmer them well.

Cook several pieces of uncured bacon until crisp. Chop. In a pot pour out 2 quarts of green beans.
Season and add sugar and bacon. Simmer the beans tasting periodically to make sure seasonings are to your liking. Serve when tender. Enjoy!
