Recipe

While I’m a fan of tender young green beans that have been steamed or slightly blanched and dressed with nothing more than a squeeze of fresh lemon, I actually prefer Southern-style green beans. For those of us who grew up on the Southern style, just sitting down to a goodly helping of these beans can bring tears of joy to our eyes.

Yield: Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1½ pound country ham, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Dash of red wine vinegar

Directions

Fill a pot with enough water to cover the beans. Add the onion and ham and bring to a boil. Add the beans and cook very slowly until tender, about 1 hour, or to taste. Remove from the heat and pour off all but one quarter of the water. Season the beans with salt, pepper, and vinegar. Place in a serving bowl and serve with a slotted spoon.
