GREEN BEANS (like your Grandmother made)

Updated: Dec 7, 2023


My mother was the BEST cook. I still think she made the best fried chicken and fried okra I have ever had. Green beans were another dish that was so good. She would always say that you had to cook them down.....that meant you cook them until there's no liquid. We don't have much patience today. Everything must be quick. These beans take about 45 minutes to "cook down" but it's so worth it. The recipe is simple so I hope you will try it.

I don’t use the sugar. I used bacon grease in the past but only oil now.

The Hanover brand green beans (with a white label) are the best I have found!

They look delicious! Just wondering how this would taste without the bacon grease? I rarely make bacon, so don’t have bacon grease.
