These are great! People couldn't get enough of them. The earlier reviewer who says this recipe is unsafe because it isn't pressure canned is incorrect. The acid in the vinegar makes this a pickle which means it is safe to water bath. You would NOT want to mess around with the 50/50 proportion of water to vinegar though, that could cause safety problems. The jars come out of the water bath with the beans looking ugly and shriveled but if you let the jars stand in your pantry for at least a couple of weeks the beans will rehydrate and look and taste just right.
These remind me of pickles/green beans. Not great but not bad either. Just different.
I have been making Dilly Beans for years and everyone now just expects to get a jar at Christmas. If you like things a little spicy, try putting a 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper or some red pepper flakes in each jar with the garlic and dill.
your recipe didn't indicate how long before you could eat them. I called my mother and mother in law and all they could tell me was if it was the same as pickles you needed to wait 3 to 4 months before eating???
These beans are wonderful! My great uncle used to can dilly beans for me when I was younger and since he passed away I've been craving them. No one else in my family cans them. I found this recipe and made my own. I've been putting them into quarts because the pints just don't last long enough. Thanks so much!
Used half wax beans and half green beans. Also, substituted dill weed for fresh dill. Great recipe!
These are SO good... even my 5-year old daughter couldn't get enough. I added a banana pepper to each jar for "looks", too... which added some flavor to boot!
This filled two large Ball Jars. I did double the garlic (four cloves in each jar), added 1/4 sliced onion to the bottom of each jar and 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper as well. So far, they smell amazing. This was very simple--it took less than ten minutes to make. I'm going to give it a couple days until I try them, but I'll tell you, it's going to be a hard couple days. ;) I'll update my review once I've had a chance to try it.
