Ooh, yum and pretty. Too bad Stirling doesn't like green beans.

Thanks Taxy! I used to make them as gifts, sibs called them "sinkies" as they would stand over the sink and eat the whole jar....

They look great Dawg, I make them for gifts too my son in law "begs" for them every year. Our beans aren't ready yet tho :(. And I'm not sure if the deer and the rabbits are going to leave enough to bother with, drat!

Thanks Bunny! Unbelievably, the deer and wabbits have left them alone so far. Usually I have to replant a few times.

Sure. It's from the Ball Blue Book.

I used red pepper flakes and dill seed instead of dill heads. I also used a combination of white and cider vinegar.

Thanks, Dawg! Sounds interesting. How crisp are the beans after processing? I like mine kinda soft myself.

These produce a crisp bean, which I love. There are other recipes that call for blanching and shocking the beans, you could probably do that if you want a softer bean. I recall my dad saying his pickled beans were never the right texture, like his mom, my grandmother's, were. He boiled them before pickling, of course they were soft!

If you don't like spicy, or garlicy, or even dilly, you can leave those out. Grandma used to just pickle hers in vinegar and pickling salt. They would set your teeth on edge, but we loved them.

Oops, scratch the leaving out the garlic, you won't do that, GG!
