Seasoned Green Beans and New Potatoes

Seasoned Green Beans and New Potatoes are wonderful right now because they are in season in the midwest.

In my experience, you just need to cook the livin’ daylights out of them with the proper seasoning to get rid of the green taste. That’s where that wonderful commodity of bacon drippings comes in. It’s like liquid gold. This recipe makes a rather large batch because I served them for a Father’s Day gathering, but you could easily cut the recipe in half for a much smaller group. Once you try fresh green beans, it’s hard to go back to that canned stuff.  In summary, these southern-style Seasoned Green Beans and New Potatoes can’t be beat. Try a pre-dinner cocktail with my Frozen Strawberry Lynchburg Lemonade.
