Southern green beans are a staple around our house. They are super simple to make, but they are oh, so tasty! When I was a little girl, my uncle made a cast iron pot of green beans on his cast iron stove. He put them on very early in the morning and every time I would walk past that stove they would smell heavenly. Heavenly. I would carefully reach my little hand in and one by one I would eat green beans until someone sent me on my way. This pattern continued throughout the day and low and behold, I wasn’t the only one sneaking green beans. Because, by the time supper time came around, there were hardly any green beans left. Whoops.
