Dill Green Beans

Dill Pickled Green Beans

2 pounds green beans

4 heads of dill (or 4 teaspoons dill seed)

6 cloves garlic, peeled

2-1/2 cups water

2-1/2 cups apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup salt

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Wash the dill and place 1 head in bottom of each pint jar along with 1-1/2 cloves of garlic.  Wash and drain green beans.  Remove stem end and pack into jars.  Combine water, vinegar, salt, cayenne and pepper flakes in a medium pan and heat to boiling.  Pour over beans and process in hot water bath 10 minutes. Allow pickled beans to sit 10 days after processing before eating.

Makes 4 pints.

You can find more detailed canning information on page 24 of our book, Eating Pure In A Processed Foods World®

Some of the items we use for canning are the Ball Mason “PINT” Jars Wide-Mouth and my latest discovery? The Ball FreshTech Electric Water Bath Canner.  This slick machine really is the ticket if you have a flat surfaced cook top or if you’d like to speed up your canning process.
