Southern-style green beans are one of my favorite side dishes. Sweet green beans are slowly simmered with bacon or ham so they pick up the great flavor of the smoky meat. When I was in college in Tennessee, we used to use canned green beans to speed up the process, but now I pick my beans out of the garden and simmer the fresh beans for an hour or two.
