"Nanny (Evelyn Lantz) was from Louisville, KY and passed this recipe to Grandma Loebach who passed to Gram and then to us. Nanny always said she'd live to be 100 and no older and that's what she did!"

fresh green beans, trimmed
water, or as needed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Never used sugar in green beans but it was nice. I was leary and just added 1 tablespoon. I always brown cook the bacon in the pot before adding the beans removing some grease. But I think you have something with the sugar!
Great beans! Even my picky eaters loved them!
I loved it and it was so easy. I always thought that green beans from the garden would be a lot of work and was very pleasantly surprised. The sugar seemed fine, actually we never noticed it at all. Super simple and delicious.
Sounds just like how my mom and grandmothers made their green beans.
