>Haricot Verts with Bacon and Onion

1 1/2 lb. fresh green beans (haricot verts / french green beans)
2 cups water
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces bacon, diced (raw)
4 ounces diced onions

Using a colander, thoroughly drain green beans. Set aside.

Mix water, sugar and pepper until well incorporated. Set aside.

Preheat your cooking pan to Medium High heat.

Raw Bacon Method.

Using a cutting board and a knife, dice the raw bacon into equal size pieces. Place diced bacon into preheated cooking pan. Continually stir bacon with large spoon to keep the bacon from burning.

Once bacon is cooked add the onions and cook until they are tender and light brown.

Now that the onions are tender add the liquid mixture and the beans.

Using the rubber spatula stir the mixture until incorporated.

Bring mixture to a boil and turn heat to simmer. Serve beans as soon as you are ready.
