ISO pickled green bean REC

i saw these in the organic foods aisle for, i kid you not, $6.59 for like a 6-oz. jar.
i said, 'i can do that.'
so i read the ingredients and they are none other than green beans, vinegar, spices, sugar, and a jar.
any tips?
i figure i'll just treat them like basic pickles and lop the ends off with a knife so they can absorb the solution.
think i'm on the right track?

luvs, I canned pickled beans last year and they were good. you can add some hot pepper flakes if you like them a little hot too. I added garlic, dill, and pepper flakes. Can't believe they are so high in the stores.

I found this recipe for you that gives you a basic rule. Savory is known as the "bean herb", and I've grown it in my garden. It's quite fragrant. You could substitute marjoram or dill.
Personally, I'd have to add a clove or two of garlic to each jar.

PICKLED GREEN BEANS WITH SAVORY
Serving Size : 6

3 lb Green beans
12 3-inch sprigs fresh summer Savory
1 qt White wine vinegar
1 qt Water
1/4 c Pickling salt
1 tbl Sugar

Wash and dry the beans. Remove ends and trim to fit
vertically in jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.

Prepare the jars, lids and boiling water bath. Fill
each dry clean jar with beans and two sprigs of savory.

In a non-reactive pan, combine the vinegar, water,
salt and sugar. Bring to boil over med-high heat,
stirring occasionally. Pour the hot liquid into the
jars, just covering the beans. Wipe the rims with a
clean towel and attach lids securely.

Place jars in boiling water bath, and when water
returns to boil, process for 15 mins.

i tried a few last night, and they were already nice and salt-and-vinegary, but the garlic flavor wasn't pronounced at all. not yet.
they were delicious, but might i say, 'heartburn in a jar'?

I am probably coming in on this way late, but don't forget bread 'n butter green beans also, and toss a couple of spears of canned pineapple in with them. Excellent chilled and served with cold fried chicken, deep fryed turkey legs, ham slices from the grill....
