Bacon. Mmmmm, bacon.....

Okay. Go buy some fresh string beans, enough to fill a big pot. Snap 'em and then steam them just enough to where they're tender but still good and firm.
While the beans are steaming, fry up a pound of bacon (Bacon. Mmmmm, bacon......) so that it's crispy and no fat on it. Don't drain it, you want bacon grease still on it. Crumble it up.
Take a couple of tablespoons of melted butter and drizzle it over the beans. Then take some garlic pepper (I use a lot, maybe a half a palm full) sprinkle it freely over the beans, then take your bacon and mix all that shit together.
Cover and put in the refrigerator. Let it sit for 3 or 4 hours to blend all the flavors.
Reheat, serve with ice cold beer.

Green beens cooked with fatback, new potato's thrown in, sprinkle fried bacon chips (lots of 'em) over top and serve with skillet cornbread (with bacon drippings drizzled into it when it's cooked) with LOTS of butter and a spoonful of apple butter... brings back lots of memories...
