2 lbs fresh french green beans
1 package of liquid chicken broth
1 tsp of bacon fat
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup chopped onion
“Snap” the beans — i.e., pick the ends off the beans, break the beans in half and toss in a colander and rinse. Combine all ingredients, bring to a boil, and simmer for 45 minutes or until soft enough for your taste.
