Leather Breeches 

String of dried green beans (Leather Breeches)

Pork seasoning fat

1 red pepper pod

Salt and Pepper

     Remove thread from beans. Wash thoroughly, drain and place in a pan of boiling water. Add pork seasoning meat and a little salt. Cook for several hours or until done. Salt and pepper to taste. 

     (Fresh, young string beans are threaded with a needle and thread and hung to dry. After completely dry they can be put in a cloth or paper sack and kept till winter. Beans prepared and dried in this way were called Leather Breeches.)
