Southern Green Beans

My mom was a wonderful cook and made everything from scratch and her green beans were a favorite side dish when I was growing up. She always canned green beans every year so we would have them all winter. This recipe is hers and I hope you enjoy her homestyle Southern Green Beans!

Southern Green Beans

Sometimes my mom would use ham hocks instead of bacon when cooking green beans. I always use bacon since I have it on hand all the time.
