Crisp Pickled Green Beans

Crispy crunchy pickled green beans, a great snack. Forget the choice and pass the green beans. Not too often you will hear that. Crisp Pickled Green Beans Recipe – Allrecipes.com was the recipe I used.  This was the perfect pickled flavor I have tried yet.  Not too sour and of course I had to add garlic to each jar, which turned out wonderful.

I think any canned food especially pickled items make great gifts.  House warming presents or a Christmas gift for a neighbor can be done ahead of time during the summer when vegetables are plentiful.  Get out there and can something.

Crispy Pickled Green Beans

 

Crisp Pickled Green Beans:

  • 2 1/2 pounds fresh green beans
  • 2 1/2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup salt (canning or pickling salt is best)
  • 1-4 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 bunch fresh dill weed
  • 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes, optional

 

Sterilize 3 pint jars with rings and lids and keep hot. Trim green beans to 1/4 inch shorter than your jars.

In a large saucepan, stir together the vinegar, water and salt. Add garlic and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. In each jar, place 1 sprig of dill and 1/8 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Pack green beans into the jars so they are standing on their ends.  I added 1 clove of peeled garlic in each jar.

Ladle the boiling brine into the jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the tops. Discard garlic. Seal jars with lids and rings. Place in a hot water bath so they are covered by 1 inch of water. Simmer but do not boil for 10 minutes to process. Cool to room temperature. Test jars for a good seal by pressing on the center of the lid. It should not move. Refrigerate any jars that do not seal properly. Let pickles ferment for 2 to 3 weeks before eating.

  1. I love pickled beans (green and yellow wax)!! My mom used to make these cinnamon yellow wax beans every summer. I don’t have the space to can, but if I could, I would make those. If I could find a similar recipe I would totally share it here:)
