Pickled Green Beans!

Huh. That's strange, all our grocery stores here carry pickling/canning salt. It might not be with the regular salt, but maybe next to the canning supplies.

Kosher salt should work, as long as it's not iodized. Table salt won't hurt you, just might leave some sediment. You can even leave the salt out, as long as you have vinegar, but the salt adds a nice taste.

Our grocery stores have pickling/canning salt on the bottom shelf under the spices. Morton is the brand I use. Table salt can make the liquid cloudy.

Any thoughts?

Amazon. They have everything. And if they don't have it you don't need it. :D

And with Prime you have it quickly.

Question YAY!

Okay, so I took one more trip down the road a piece
(about 30 minutes from our house)
and finally found Morton's Pickling and Canning Salt
$1.48 + tax for a 4 pound box
I think that I'll be set in canning for the next few years
I made 6 pint jars for Mom as part of her Christmas gift
(she's already sent me her wish list of mainly food items as she no longer lives with us, but a good 9 hour car trip away)
So this is one of the few items that I've already put up for her

Does this look okay?
I suppose we'll find out in December how they taste.
@Dawgluver, I used the recipe from the Ball book, 2times the recipe of liquids just to be sure I had enough brine

Looks awesome, K-girl! Great job!

Now the trick will be to leave them alone for 6 weeks. If you can do that, your willpower is stronger than mine

@Dawgluver, Mahalo, thank you, they're going into the sideboard in the dinning room along with the rest of Mom's gifts, to hide in the dark until Thanksgiving, when we'll drive out to see her.
... but here's a question?
I heard the 6 "pings" of the lids vaccum-sealing themselves, but there's this saline discharge on the side of the jars...
Is this okey-dokey?

Should be. As long as the jars pinged, they sealed. Wash them off after they've sat overnight.

right on! thanks, I feel better now, I thought maybe I blew it again.
After this batch, I realized that EVERYTHING that I did in making Dilly Beans in the past was WRONG!!! I just said to DH, I'm suprised that I haven't killed the old gal
