Canning Green Beans

Doesn't anyone can green beans anymore. I put up 5 quarts of dilly beans 2 weeks ago and 7 quarts of canned beans last saturday. I'm growing bush style and pole beans, yummy! :)

Green beans are probably canned more than any other vegetable, in the hundreds of jars at a time by some people. I just hope you Pressure Canned those 7 quarts of regular beans.

I prefer doing Dilly Bills, but I'm not growing beans this year so I'm not pushed. Right now it is salsa from an over abundance of tomatoes. Also been doing relishes, especially with zucchinis.

I don't have a pressure canner and I don't have any green beans
Maybe one day I'll try planting some Blue Lake Bush Beans and buy a pressure canner, but just not today

yeppers, I can green beans....I always plant green beans, but I do not can them every year. I tend to plant a LOT of a given vegetable and concentrate on canning that vegetable a season. I like my green beans better fresh, than put by.

I just water bath canned some dilly beans today. And pressure canned green beans a couple of weeks ago with the first picking. It was our first year of green beans and canning. I hope to do a lot more.

What are Dilly Beans?

I plan on pressure canning some green beans this year. Maybe a dozen or so pints just to try out.

Is it green beans that everyone freeks out over getting botulism (sp?)? Someone at work told me she would never cans corn because she has always heard bad things happening with it.

Dilly Beans are pickled green beans, which is the only safe way to process them in a Boiling Water Canner. Recipe is in the Ball Blue Book.
