Title: Boiled string beans with ham
Categories: Ethnic, Pork & ham, Vegetables
Yield: 8 Servings
8 Pig's tails
2 1/3 lb Fresh string beans
1 tb Salt
1 ts Freshly ground black pepper
1 ts Sugar
From a smoked ham or
1. Put the ham bone in a 6-quart pot with enough water to fill
halfway. Heat to boiling, lower the heat to a simmer, and cover.
Simmer 45 minutes.
2. Prepare the beans while the bone is simmering. Snap the stem end
from each bean and pull gently along the length of the bean to remove
the string. (It may not be necessary to remove the string from very
young beans.) Rinse the beans in a colander under cold running
water. Drain and add to the pot along with the salt, pepper, and
sugar. Simmer the beans until very tender, up to 30 minutes for old
tough beans or around 15 minutes for very tender young beans. Check
the seasoning halfway through the cooking and adjust if necessary.
Remove the bone and drain the beans. Serve hot.
