You have to really like pickled green beans to enjoy this recipe! I also grew up in Utah, and yes, this is a popular way to preserve the mother load of green beans most people grow in their gigantic gardens here. I am not a huge fan of really spicy food, so I tweaked the amount of chile peppers. I only used two that I divided between the 8 jars. It gave it a little zing, but it was not over powering. REMEMBER, THIS IS FOR 8 PINT JARS! It isn't too salty if prepared correctly. Happy Canning! :)
VERY salty!!! Every other dilly bean recipe I have seen uses 2 1/2 c water 2 1/2 c vinegar to 1/4c pickleing salt. not 1 c salt
The first time I tried dilly beans was over 10 years ago, and haven't had them since. I made them this summer out of our garden fare and these are delicious! On half the jars I left out the pepper and they are still delicious. I also used about 1/2 the pickling spice and 1/2 the mustard seed, and the flavor was still great. I might leave out all the pickling spice and put in all the mustard next time. Great recipe!
These are wonderful! Been making them for years and the salt to water to vinegar ratio is spot on. Love the addition of pickling spice and mustard. Try them in a bloody Mary or on your next relish tray.
Our family has always been given homemade dilly beans for Christmas. I wanted to make some and hoped that they would come out AT LEAST as good as the ones we are usually given. THESE WERE BETTER! I followed the recipe exactly, but threw in a tiny bit more garlic for our Italian tastes! I will be making these every year from now on! P.S. This was only my second time canning! Give 'em a try!
Identical to my father's recipe- If you like pickled vegetables, this one is sure to please!
I grew up in Utah and Dilly beans were all the rage. I must say it was never one of my favs. I do like how this one has peppers. I think the other person rating this did not see that this is a recipe for 8 jars, so one cup salt does not sound all that bad to me
I did not use the musturd seed this recipe calls for since the pickling spice I used had lots already. Husband LOVED!!! Thanks!!
