Growing up, my mom used to can garlic dilly pickled green beans. Let me tell you, I LOVED them! I did not like beans all that much, but something about these dilly beans transformed them into something I could not stop eating. I even liked them when she added a bit of spice, like a habanero.

Now that I have my own garden, it’s overflowing with beans. My daughter insisted we plant the multi-colored variety the past few years, so our pickled green beans are also a rainbow of colors. These little treats are a great way to get your kids to eat beans!

Pickled Green Beans

If you're not a big fan of green beans, then you gotta try pickling them. They are delicious and very easy to make. These little treats are also a great way to get your kids to eat beans!

Ingredients

  • Enough green beans to fill 3 quart jars, tightly packed
  • 5 cups white vinegar

    4. To each jar also add a sprig of dill, a few peppercorns, and the habanero (if desired).
    5. Tightly pack green beans into jars and set aside.


      I added pepper flakes to this one…
    6. Bring the vinegar, water, salt, and sugar to a boil in a non-reactive saucepan.
    7. Pour hot vinegar liquid over the beans and screw lids on.
    8. Allow to cool.
    9. Store in the refrigerator, they will be ready to eat in a day or two and will keep refrigerated for several weeks.
    10. This recipe will work for other vegetables too. Try it with carrots, onions, zucchini, peppers, cucumbers.

  1. Could these be done without sugar? When I make sauerkraut and dill pickles I’ve never used sugar and we try to avoid it as often as possible. These sound yummy! I love green beans and anything dill so I can’t wait to try these!

  2. Your recipe starts out using 3 QUART jars but the instructions say 3 PINT jars. Might be very confusing to some 😉
