Ham, Potatoes And Green Beans

(the way my Mom used to make)
2 pounds potatoes2 pounds fresh green beans (or 2-3 cans of green beans, drained)2 c ham, dicedHam broth, if you have it
Salt, but not if you use ham broth
Peel the potatoes and quarter them. If they’re big potatoes, you’ll need to cut them again. Tip and tail the green beans and cut them into about 1” to 1-1/2” pieces. Cook the potatoes, green beans and ham in ham broth, if you have it, or in water if you don’t, until the potatoes are done. Serve it in bowls, with some of the broth.
Actually, I'm just pulling quantities out of the air, here. The real recipe is however much ham you have, and how every many green beans you have, and enough potatoes to make it feed however many people you expect for supper. It's a very flexible and forgiving recipe.
