Dilly Green Beans, Canning Green Beans


Gardener's Supply Company

I am much happier growing green beans and cooking them than I am canning them. My sister is the expert in our family when it comes to canning green beans. Along with green beans I have lots of herbs in the garden, especially dill. So it only makes sense that my sister would us this particular recipe. She found it on an old Meal Master recipes page. She says it's a keeper and we certainly enjoy the results!

Dilly Bean Recipe - Canning Dilly Beans

2 lbs tender green beans - stringless type

2 cups water
2 cups white distilled vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons pickling salt or to taste
1/3 cup sugar
2 bay leaves

2 small onions - peeled and thinly sliced
8 red hot peppers

8 cloves garlic, peeled
8 sprigs fresh dill

Wash beans and snip off ends. Discard any that are wilted or discolored.

In a saucepan combine water, vinegar, pickling salt, sugar, bay leaves,
and onions. Bring liquid to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Drop beans into boiling water and cook for just 5 minutes. They must still be crisp.

Drain immediately and rinse in cold water.

Pack beans upright in 8-ounce jars with a couple of slices of onion. Add 1 hot pepper, 1 clove garlic,
and a sprig of dill to each jar and pour hot vinegar mixture over the beans to overflowing.

Seal immediately.

Makes eight 8-ounce jars.


Thinly cut carrots or other firm vegetables may be used in place of or in addition to the beans.
