Why I Love This Recipe

My mom passed this recipe onto me recently and I can't thank her enough! These have quickly become one of my favourite snacks!

These are great to munch on on their own (fantastic in the summer!) or to garnish a drink (bloody mary, anyone?).

Yields 4 pints

Ingredients You'll Need

3 lbs Young green beans
4 long, thin Red chiles (fresh or dried)
4 large Garlic cloves
1 tbsp Peppercorns (white, black, green or a mixture)
1/4 cup loosely-packed fresh dill sprigs (or 4 tbsp dried dill weed)
2 1/2 cup Water
2 1/2 cup White wine vinegar
1/4 cup Salt


Trim and remove strings from the beans. Rinse well and set aside.

Sterilize jars and lids in boiling water. When jars are cool enough to handle, fill each upright with beans until they are snug. Insert chiles and garlic cloves (preferably around outside so they can be seen). Divide peppercorns and dill among jars.

Separately bring the water, vinegar and salt to a boil in a non-reactive sauce pan. Ladle the hot brine over the beans leaving about 1/2-inch head space.

Wipe jar edge clean and screw on sterilized lid and band according to manufacturers instructions.

Process in a boiling water bath for 12 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely at room temperature away from drafts.

Check lids to make sure proper seal has been attained.

Store for at least one month before using to allow flavours to develop.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I have to agree with the saint. I made these around the end of July. We got into a jar a few days ago and I've been gathering all I can to make as many as I can before the beans are done! Two yums up!

Wow, surprised by the previous review. I made these last fall and they were a big hit. Just made another batch this past weekend and returned to this site to print the recipe out for a friend. Everyone has raved about them.

You may want to check your "moms" measurements. I made this recipe as descibed and the beans are not good. Way too much White wine vinegar. Do not follow this recipe
