Ingredients

  • clean dry natural or white twine. large darning needle..several large brown paper bags. any amount of green or yellow beans cleaned.

Directions

thread your darning needle with about a yard of twine at a time. pierce the beans about 1/3 down the length till you have a 2 foot ``necklace``. place the bean necklace in the brown bag w/the 2 ends of twine sticking out of the bag...you can put 2 of these bean necklaces to a big bag...pinch the top of the bag together tight and leave the ends of the twine hanging out of the bag..tie the ends of the twine together making a loop to hang the bag up..hang the bags in a dry place w/good air flow..the beans take about a month to dry depending on the weather..you can leave the dried beans in the bags or put in another big container to store.

Note: to cook the beans..soak in water overnight in large kettle, pour off the soaking water in the morning and cover the beans w/fresh water, add a couple smoked hocks or what ever smoked meat you have,, bring up to boil and then cover and turn down the fire to slow cook about 2 hours, season the way you like them, they have a good taste..good w/pan bread.
