Cook Time
  • 4pounds green beans
  • 2 1/2cups distilled white vinegar
  • 2 1/2cups softened water
  • 4tablespoons pickling salt
  • 6 medium sized garlic cloves
  • 2tablespoons dill seed
  • 2tablespoons red chili flakes
  • 6pint jarswith fresh lids and bands
  1. Wash and sterilize the jars and bands, and place the lids in a small saucepan at a bare simmer.
  2. Wash and trim beans, cutting to ensure they’ll fit in the jar.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine vinegar, water and salt and bring to a boil.
  4. While the brine heats, pack beans snugly into the jars. To each jar, add 1 clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon dill seeds, and 1 teaspoon chili flakes.
  5. Slowly pour the hot picking brine over the beans, leaving 1/2″ inch headroom. When jars are full, dislodge any air bubbles with a wooden chopstick. Check the brine levels and readjust headroom if necessary.
  6. Wipe the rims and threads with a damp cloth, apply lids and rings and process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from the bath, and let cool. When cool enough to handle, label and date before storing in a cool, dark cupboard.
  8. Allow pickles to rest for at least one week before sampling.
