I love to grow green beans in my garden every year. On good years, I end up canning many pints of green beans to store away for winter. To can green beans, you need a pressure canner to process them. If you like pickled vegetables, you should give these pickled green beans a try! Because they are pickled there is no need to pressure can them, you can process them in your boiling water canner.

DIY Pickling: Step-By-Step Recipes for Fermented, Fresh, and Quick Pickles
Pickled Green Beans Recipe
- 2 lbs. green beans (makes 4 pints)
- 4 sprigs fresh dill
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 1/2 c. white vinegar
- 2 1/2 c. water
- 1/4 c. pickling salt
This recipe makes 4 pints of pickled green beans. You can easily double this recipe.
Rinse off the green beans and snap off the ends of the beans so that they will fit into the jars.
Add a garlic clove and a sprig of dill to each jar. If you can’t find any fresh dill, just add a teaspoon of dried dill to each jar.
Combine the vinegar, water, and pickling salt in a large sauce pan. Let simmer until the salt dissolves.
Place the green beans in the jars lengthwise. Pour the hot vinegar mixture into each jar, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. You can easily measure the headspace with this inexpensive canning funnel.

If you don’t want to seal the jars for long term storage, at this point you can just place the jars in the refrigerator and eat the turnips in the next couple of weeks. If you would like to can them to last for a year or more, follow the directions below.
Wipe the rims of the jars with a paper towel or clean dish towel. Place sterilized lids and rings on the jars, screwing the rings on fingertight.
Place your prepared jars in a boiling water canner and cover the jars with 1-2 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil and process the jars for 10 minutes.
