"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for German Green Beans, by Janis Richardson, is from Generations of Good Eating,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
4 slices bacon 1 onion, chopped 1 tablespoon flour 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup vinegar 1/2 cup water 4 cups cooked or canned French style green beans
Fry bacon until crisp; remove from skillet, leaving drippings. Add onion to drippings and cook till tender. Add flour, sugar, salt, vinegar and water. Mix well and simmer until slightly thickened. Add beans and cook for 5 minutes. Crumble bacon on top just before serving.
I remember that Granny made beans like these - wish I had her recipe!
