THANKSGIVING SIDES AND DESSERTS SWEET AND SOUR GREEN BEANS

Heidi found this recipe in the Point of Grace cookbook.
We had them for the first time when we were on vacation a couple of years ago and we've making them every since for special occasions.
This picture isn't ours. It's from the Point of Grace facebook page.

You know what I mean   for those times when you want something just a little bit different, a little more special than  your usual green beans.

The recipe says they are best made a day ahead of time and that makes them ideal for Thanksgiving because as you know the more things we can get done the day before the better.

Here's the list of things you will need.

6 cans of green beans, drained,  any brand you like and it's just the regular size cans.
1/2 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 pound bacon
1 large onion cut into thin rings

1. Fry bacon
2. Remove from pan and take grease off of heat. Crumble the bacon.
3. Mix vinegar and sugar. Add to grease.
4. Transfer to a large pot. Place onions in grease mixture and saute until limp.
5. Add beans and stir.
Cook 30 minutes or more, stirring frequently.

I like to cook green beans a long time.
If you make them ahead and they  get a chance to sit in the juice all night they will be wonderful.
Just heat and serve.
