List of Ingredients
Wash about 1 cups of dried green beans.
Place them in a pan with 4 cups of water.
Let stand overnight.
Next day, pour off the water in which the beans were soaked and rinse them well.
Put the beans into a large pot with a close fitting lid.
Add 3/4 teaspoon salt. 3 cups of water, and a 2 inch square of salt pork. (can use bacon grease)
Cook over medium heat for about 3 hours, adding more water if need.
Dried beans swell as they soak, what you think is just a little turns out to be a lot when cooked.
