Dutch Green Beans

Helen Story, B.H.S.

  • 2 lb fresh green beans
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 Tbsp parsley

Wash beans and string. Cut French style in long thin strips. Boil in a small amount of water about 15 minutes, closely covered, using half the salt. While beans are cooking, fry the bacon lightly. Add water, vinegar, remaining salt, pepper, and sugar. Sprinkle minced onion and parsley over the well drained beans. Pour the bacon dressing over all. Don not stir, but shake well to coat all beans with the dressing.

Yield: 8 – 10 servings.
