Gather your ingredients fresh from the garden.
STRING BEANS AND BACON
1 pound of bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
a bowl full of fresh picked string beans
4 or 5 tomatoes cut into about 1 inch squares
add other vegetables fresh from the garden if desired
(peppers, squash, carrots, etc.)
Bring a large sauce pan of water to boil. Add trimmed and snapped beans and cook until beans are semi-cooked about 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile fry bacon in a cast iron skillet. When bacon is done do not drain off all the grease (leave at least 2-4 tbs. of grease). Add semi cooked beans and stir to coat beans. Let cook another 2 minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes and cook down until tomatoes are tender.
