Shaker Creamed String Beans (1953)

  • 2 lbs green beans
  • 1/4 lb salt pork, chopped
  • 1.2 cup cream
  • 1 tspn sugar
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • Pinch of soda

Break off the ends of beans and break into 2-inch lengths. Try out salt pork in bottom of pan; when slightly browned, add beans and a cup of boiling water.

When boiling, add a very small amount of soda, and cook for 20 minutes. Drain off water, and add sugar, salt, pepper and cream. Simmer for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
