The last of the bounty from my grandfather's garden...

3 tbsp butter
1 lb fresh snap beans
2 cups water
l lb chopped ham
Salt and pepper, to taste
10 new potatoes, peeled
In a heavy pot, add butter, onion and seasonings. Saute for 5 min. Add water, beans, and ham. Bring to a rapid boil reducing heat to simmer. Cook covered for 45 min. Add new potatoes. Cook 30 min. Serves 6.
