Green Beans with Poblano Peppers is my recipe of the day with Farmer’s Market Week. I’ve been  sharing recipes all week  long and will  continue through  tomorrow. And hopefully a few others on empty days if I don’t go  awol.

These braised green beans are typical  of  something  I might make with a  homestyle supper. Being  very much like southern braised green beans which I  do in many ways.

This has country bacon in it  because…it was in the fridge. Country bacon  is  typical in  Amish country, along with the also-salty country ham.  It makes great seasoning. If you are going to have it for breakfast it probably likes a soak since it is salt cured, but it is fine for something  that needs salt anyway, like veggies.

Poblanos are wonderful as peppers. A bit spicier than bell  peppers and with better flavor.

The beans braise for a bit to be tender so don’t expect a crispier bean- these are truly southern style. They are soft like veggies in a  stew would be soft. Lots of pot juice there too–bake up some cornbread to soak it up. Not just a southern thing. My MIL would never have  dreamt of wasting veggie broth and she lived lifelong in the great  white north of Wisconsin.

And pardon my spoon- it’s my favorite and has seen many days in the bottom of a fiery wok. At least it has never caught on fire,  but like a cookbook splattered with food love spots, the wood here shows my love for it.   I did buy some new ones but nah. The  wood doesn’t feel the same.
