Southern green beans with apricots
Looking for a new way to serve beans? This early 20th century dish is fabulous as a side to just about any main.
- Place beans and broth in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook, covered, until beans are crisp-tender, 4-7 minutes; drain.
- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings in pan.
- Add apricots to drippings; cook and stir over medium heat until softened. Add vinegar, salt, garlic powder, pepper and beans; cook and stir until beans are coated, 2-3 minutes longer. Sprinkle with bacon.
