"This is a very simple recipe that tastes great. Put your beans on in early morning and let them cook all day. Handed down by my Grandma who came from a pretty poor family. Goes great with cornbread."

  1. Place the green beans in a large saucepan with a lid or a slow cooker. Pour water over the beans to cover; stir in salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the beans are very tender, 3 to 4 hours; add water throughout the cooking time as needed to keep moist.
