Folks around here have many names for Dried Green Beans. Some old timers call them 'Leather Britches', some call them 'Shuck Beans', and younger people simply call them 'Dried Beans'. But, around our house we call'em 'Shuck Beans'. No matter what Kentucky Folk might call them, the one thing for sure is, they call them 'Good'!
Some still cook them with a big piece of Fatback, or a big spoonful of Lard. Mmmm. Some good eating. We still dry our beans the old fashioned way. We string them up and hang them to dry in the outbuilding. Works just as well as it did, when we were growing up. I bought a new dehydrator and used it to dry apples, but it dried them as hard as a rock, so I only dried one batch of apples, and put that thing out in a yard sale.
We like to wash our 'Shuck Beans', and soak them overnite, then cook them in a crockpot. We use a little corn oil, or olive oil, and salt for seasoning. When we fix 'Shuck Beans', all we need with them is a pan of cornbread, a big onion, and a cold glass of milk.
How good, God is to us, to give us such things!
