 1 (28 ounce) can green beans
 2 strips uncooked bacon, diced
 1 small white onion, diced
 1 teaspoon parsley
 1/2 teaspoon thyme
 1/4 teaspoon sage
 salt and pepper to taste ( you need a bunch of salt to give this dish any flavor. Most of the salt stays in the water.)

Add all ingredients in a large pot and add enough water to cover beans.


Bring to a simmer and cook for three hours stirring occasionally. You may have to add more water every now and then to keep the beans from drying out on top.
