Cooked To Death Green Beans
- 2 quarts home-canned green beans or store-bought canned Blue Lake variety green beans, with their liquid
- 1/2 pound cured ham hock
Put the beans, their liquid and the ham in a large, heavy saucepan. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until the majority of the liquid has cooked down, about 30 minutes.
Salt pork or Goya brand ham-flavored seasoning may be substituted for the ham hock.
