French Bean Recipe

I knew that one of the first emails I'd get was for a recipe to cook French Beans. And sure enough Miss Dot (Houma) came through! (Thanks Miss Dot)

I'll do my best to re-create it here and add a little humor!


Salt pork
1 - Med onion
4 - 6 French Beans

Take one long slice of salt pork, boil long to remove salt, after meat is boiled rinse well for a long time. In thick pot add enough oil to cover bottom and add one medium onion finely chopped long. Snap... 4 (unless you think that the pot will be over-full) of your french beans and add to pot, smother until beans are smashed. Season with long salt and long pepper. Eat with long fork!

So long.....
