Seriously no recipe exists for mom's green beans.
She used home canned beans (blue lakes) if she had them.
If you do not I suggest Delmonte blue green beans. Mother could be
very specific in brands of canned foods.
I don't know why, but I swear those in the large cans taste better that the
regular 14.5 ounce cans.

Directions:
Directions:
She would always drain the beans and add fresh water when
she put them in a pan to cook. She would add a little onion and
cook them a while. I would say 30 minutes. At this point
add some bacon grease (approximately a teaspoon per 2 cups
of beans) and salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer 30 minutes and add additional seasoning to taste if needed.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Too much bacon grease or salt will ruin the taste so start out slow
and only add more if necessary.
