Wash green beans and trim stem-end. Cut to desired length, or keep long.  Place on a baking tray and toss with a little canola or olive oil. Squeeze the lime or lemon juice onto the beans, then season with salt and pepper.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 or 15 minutes, or until they are tender but still have a little crunch.

Remove from the oven and toss with the bacon jam. Serve immediately.

*You can make your own bacon jam with this great recipe from, or buy it fresh, locally- ready-made from Main Street Meats.
