Ham ( I buy the ham that is just a slice of ham for about $2)
I do Ham and Beans with Green beans.
get the fresh green beans ( or whole frozen ones, but like 2-3 lbs)
I like to use the ham bone after the holidays, because of all the meat left on it.
1 onion
and 6-8 potatoes, whichever kind you like.
toss it all in a BIG pot, cover with water, add salt and pepper. bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 6+ hours.
I also add carrots when i want to stretch it.
