Home Canned Dilly Beans

I tried this once before, many years ago for my Mother who adores Pickled Green Beans.
We use to be able to buy it in the Supermarket, but for some reason, they stopped producing it I guess. I do see from time to time in specialty stores, the stuff in jars, but egads! The are pricey!

I mish-mashed the Ball Recipe with another to create my own version.
Garlic Cloves, Mustard Seeds, fresh Dill Frowns and Seeds too, to equal parts White Vinegar to Water along with the appropriate amount of Canning/Pickling Salt.
I purchased fresh Green Beans at the local Green Grocer for a fairly inexpensive cost and I wound up with 4 1/2 pints & 2 pint sized jars.
That's a bit too much for my Mom, I know, so I shared the 2 pint jars with neighbors. The one neighbor said that she hadn't had Dilly Beans since she left Maine, something like 10 years ago.

Your post gave me a flashback to Euell Gibbons and his Dill Crock.

That sounds delicious, KG! Sounds a lot like the dill cukes I make, but with beans. I might have to use a few of my beans this summer to make something like this. I also have a generous amount of dill started.

How long did you process those pint jars?

We make a batch of those every summer, just like the making dill cucumbers. They stay a little crispy. We slice them into 1 inch sections and put them on our salads.

Dave, I processed all 6 jars together for 20 minutes ... we live at almost 5000 feet above Sea level

... and a big Mahalo, thanks for your comments folks.

Dilly beans are in most supermarkets here but I add my own green beans from the garden to the brine when the originals are eaten up. I basically pickle every vegetable is sight.
