Between my garden and the local Farmers market I ended up having over 10 pounds of green beans to process today.
Most of those I quickly blanched and frozen, but I saved a few to pickle.
Picked beans are something I've never tried but I just love Dill so I gave it a try.
2 1/2 cups white vinegar
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup pickling salt
2 tsp Dill Seed
2 tsp Dried Dill Weed
4 cloves Garlic (optional)
2 pounds fresh Green Beans
4 pint jars
Trim beans to fit in jars and put them into jars.
Place all other ingredients in a small pot and bring to boil. Remove garlic. PoUr brine over beans and then wipe and cap jars.
Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes or keep in refrigerator for 3 weeks.
