From the kitchen of Christine C. - Childersburg, Alabama
This is a favorite of mine which came from Southern Living.
5 (16 ounce) cans whole green beans (don't drain)
1/2 pound bacon
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1/3 cup vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
Fry bacon in a large skillet and remove to paper towels to drain.
Sauté onion in bacon grease until transparent. Dissolve vinegar and sugar together; pour into onions and bring to a boil. Add green beans and liquid. Cook down until beans are tender. Add a little water if needed.
