With the Garden producing MASS amounts… Check out our Site for other Green Bean Recipes. We not only canned a bunch, but, have tons of Great GO-TO Recipes for Beans. Making a quick and Easy Side Dish, that’s NEVER BORING!
Pint Jars… Recipe below was per 4 jars, I believe.
Mrs. Wages Dilled Green Bean Pkg.
2 1/2 lbs Fresh Whole Green Beans
2 1/2c White Distilled Vinegar (5% acidity)
2 1/2c Water
1/2 – 1c Sugar (We did 1/2, we only like it some sweet.)
In EACH Jar (We used Pint jars), place:
1 WHOLE Med. sized Garlic Clove
1tsp Dried Red Pepper Flakes
1/2T minced, dried, Onion Flakes
1/4tsp Celery Seed
1/4tsp Mustard Seed
Wash and Trim Green Beans. Place Beans in Large NON Reactive Sauce Pan. Don’t use Aluminum Pan. Cover Beans with Water and Boil. Reduce Heat and Simmer 5min. Remove from Heat immediately.
In separate pan (Same non-reactive, non aluminum), combine Pkt., Vinegar, Water, and Sugar. Stir til blended. Add in Beans. Bring to Boil, reduce to Simmer for 5 minutes. Shut off Heat.
In clean and prepped jars (Info on this on internet-Search Prep Canning Jars), add Ingredients listed above under “In EACH Jar“. Scoop out Beans and divide them into each jar. Then, equally divide the Pickling Liquid, trying to get equal seasoning with liquid (I stir and scoop up with ladle). Fill up, leaving 1/2in. headspace.DRY off jars and lids. Twist on tops.
Boil entire, filled, jars for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and set jars UPSIDE DOWN on flat surface (Helps with Seal Success.)!. Occasionally, when cooled to touch, I double check tops and give a firm, but not tight, twist. Once cooled, store appropriately.
Want it Spicier? Add halved Cayenne or Red Hot Pepper (Seeds Optional) to each jar. Or, up the Red Pepper Flakes. Or, (I have yet to try) try adding sliced Jalapeno (Seeds Optional).
